Church Road Grand Reserve Hawke's Bay Syrah (2019)

The classy 2019 vintage (5*) is a highly fragrant, powerful, savoury red, estate-grown in the Bridge Pa Triangle (74 per cent) and the Gimblett Gravels (26 per cent). It was matured for 17 months in French oak barriques (27 per cent new). Deeply coloured and still purple-flushed, it is mouthfilling, sweet-fruited and supple, with concentrated plum and spice flavours, oak complexity, and a finely textured, long, spicy finish. Drink now and over the next decade.
