Mission The Gaia Project Hawke's Bay Syrah (2020)

Full of youthful impact, the debut 2020 vintage (4.5*) is a deeply coloured wine, partly barrel-aged. Full-bodied, it is vigorous and concentrated, with strong blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, savoury notes adding complexity, fresh acidity and good tannin backbone. A stylish wine with obvious potential, it's well worth cellaring to 2023 onwards.
