You’ve got to be good to reach the peak. And to put something under their Grand Reserve Peak label, the guys at Sileni Estate in Hawke’s Bay use their best fruit from their best vineyards in the Bridge Pa District.
A few years back this label reached the absolute peak – making the top 1% of over 17,000 wines at the Decanter World Wine Awards! The 2018 is now here, under a fancy slick new label, and already getting a good thumbs up, 93/100 score from The Real Review’s Bob Campbell.
Bob said “Smooth-textured, medium-bodied syrah with ripe plum, blackcurrant, black pepper, subtle violet and spicy oak flavours. A core of sweet fruit is perfectly balanced by fine, ripe tannins that promote a pleasantly dry finish.”
Peak drinking for the Peak? Drink now to around 2025.
