Blank Canvas Gimblett Gravels Element Syrah (2018)

The elegant 2018 vintage (4.5*) is a single-vineyard red, co-fermented with Grüner Veltliner (7 per cent of the blend) and French oak-matured for over a year. Deeply coloured, with a fragrant, spicy bouquet, it is very fresh and vibrant, with strong, plummy, spicy flavours, savoury notes adding complexity, lively acidity and a long finish. Well worth cellaring.
