    Formerly known as Church Road’s Reserve range they’ve given the wines a slick, stealth like black label and slapped the word “Grand” in the name.

    So that’s the marketing job done, what about the wine? Are they actually Grand? Are they what! These are sheer world class wines, up there with the best you’ll find in Hawke’s Bay. That’s why you’ll only find Church Road wines under this label released in great vintages from low-cropping vineyard blocks (to ensure more concentrated, ripe flavours), hand-harvested and produced using small batch, traditional techniques. All from the world famous Gimblett Gravels sub region.

    An elegant, spicy, peppery Syrah full of dark berry fruit flavours. A class act start to finish and with plenty of cellaring potential (up to ten years from vintage) there’s good reason to grab a six pack and enjoy them over the years ahead!

    The Lowdown: 14% alc / 750ml / Screwcap
