Craggy Range Gimblett Gravels Single Vineyard Hawke's Bay Syrah (2019)

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 2019 vintage (4.5*) was matured for 14 months in French oak barriques (25 per cent new). Deep and youthful in colour, it has a floral, peppery fragrance. Fresh and full-bodied, it is supple, with strong plum, spice and black pepper flavours, showing good vigour and concentration. Well worth cellaring.
