Esk Valley Hillside Hawke's Bay Syrah (2020)

The classy 2020 vintage (5*) was grown on the elevated, north-facing Heipipi Vineyard, at Bay View, and matured for 18 months in seasoned French oak puncheons. Full, bright ruby, it is mouthfilling and supple, with deep, ripe plum, berry, spice and nut flavours, complex and finely textured. Gentle and savoury, with notable harmony, it is a distinctive red, well worth discovering.
