Esk Valley Hillside Hawke's Bay Syrah (2019)

The distinctive, debut 2019 vintage (4.5*) was grown on the north-facing Heipipi Vineyard, at Bay View. Harvested from 12 year-old vines and matured for 19 months in seasoned French oak puncheons, it is deep ruby, fragrant, savoury and supple, with impressive complexity. Celebrating elegance rather than density, it's already highly approachable.
