Church Road 1 Single Vineyard Gimblett Gravels Syrah (2017)

The 2017 vintage (5*) is a very graceful, supple Hawke's Bay red, matured for 18 months in French oak barriques (41 per cent new). From a vintage that yielded no Syrah under the prestige Tom label, it's a beautiful young red, full-coloured and floral, with intense plum and spice flavours, a hint of liquorice, savoury and nutty notes adding complexity, and silky tannins. Best drinking 2022+.
