Elephant Hill Hawke's Bay Syrah (2019)

The 2019 vintage (4.5*) was hand-harvested in the Bridge Pa Triangle (40 per cent), Te Awanga (35 per cent), and the Gimblett Gravels (25 per cent). Co-fermented with Viognier (1 per cent), it was matured in French oak barriques. Full-coloured, it is a strongly varietal red, mouthfilling and supple, with very good intensity of vibrant, spicy flavours, finely textured and lingering. Best drinking 2023+.
