Villa Maria Cellar Selection Hawke's Bay Syrah (2020)

Offering great drinkability, the 2020 vintage (4*) was grown in the Gimblett Gravels and aged for a year in French oak barriques (18 per cent new). Full-coloured, with a floral, spicy bouquet, it is mouthfilling and supple, in a clearly varietal style with vibrant, plummy, spicy flavours, fresh acidity, and an almost Pinot Noir-ish texture and charm. Best drinking 2023+.
