Villa Maria Reserve Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay Syrah (2019)

Potentially a great wine, the classy, very ageworthy 2019 vintage (5*) was grown in the Gimblett Gravels and aged in French oak barriques. It has deep, purple-flushed colour. Full-bodied, it is finely structured, with dense, ripe, plum and spice flavours, complex and savoury, well-integrated oak, refined tannins and a very harmonious, lasting finish. Best drinking 2025+.
