John Forrest Collection Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay Syrah (2014)

Still on sale, the classy, delicious 2014 vintage (5*) was grown in the Cornerstone Vineyard and matured for 20 months in oak casks (40 per cent new). Boldly coloured, it is a notably powerful, lush wine, with dense, very ripe plum, blackcurrant and liquorice flavours, good tannin backbone, and a finely textured, very harmonious finish. Best drinking 2021+.
