Mission Reserve Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay Syrah (2019)

The very graceful, well priced 2019 vintage (4.5*) was matured for a year in French oak barrels. Full-coloured, with a fragrant, fresh, peppery bouquet, it is mouthfilling, vibrantly fruity and supple, with strong plum, spice and black pepper flavours, showing good complexity, and a finely textured, harmonious, lingering finish. Drink now or cellar.
