Craggy Range Gimblett Gravels Single Vineyard Hawke's Bay Syrah (2016)

This label is overshadowed by the reputation of its stablemate, Le Sol, but proves the power, structure and finesse that can be achieved with Syrah grown in the Gimblett Gravels of Hawke's Bay. The 2016 vintage (4.5*) was matured for 16 months in French oak barriques (20 per cent new). Dense and youthful in colour, it has a floral, peppery fragrance. Mouthfilling and vibrant, with good density of plum, spice and black-pepper flavours, fresh and firm, it's a classy red, best cellared to 2021+.
