Craggy Range Le Sol (2017)

This famous Syrah impresses with its lovely fragrance and finesse. Estate-grown in the Gimblett Gravels of Hawke's Bay, the densely packed 2016 vintage (5*) was hand-picked and matured for 17 months in French oak barriques (35 per cent new). Still youthful, it is dark and purple-flushed, mouthfilling and supple, with highly concentrated plum and black-pepper flavours, refined tannins, and a lasting finish. It needs time; open 2021+. (There is no 2017.)
