Bilancia Hawke's Bay Syrah (2019)

Offering fine value, the impressive 2019 vintage (5*) was grown at a single vineyard on Roys Hill and matured for 10 months in French oak barriques, 'mainly older'. Deeply coloured, it is mouthfilling, vibrantly fruity and supple, with deep, ripe, plummy, spicy flavours, complex and savoury, and a seductively smooth finish. Well worth cellaring, it's already delicious.
