    Being NZ’s most awarded winery you come to expect anything under their premium Reserve black label to be glittered in awards…and hey presto they’ve done it again!

    Their Reserve label range simply doesn’t go a vintage without collecting a Gold or two (or three or four or more) along the way, so it’s basically no surprise to us to see their 2019 release take out two Gold medal pretty quickly after release!

    Using the very parcels of fruit from their prized Gimblett Gravels, no expense was spared in producing the best expression of Syrah they could craft. The winemaker waffled on about it being “Deep, almost inky purple hues lead to a dense and perfumed nose of pepper, black liquorice and graphite, alongside fragrant notes of violets and cocoa.”

    What you need to know is this is an example of Hawke’s Bay Syrah at its very best. It’s made to be enjoyed over the long term (10-15 years from vintage). It’s also the ideal wine to wow the dinner party guests, serving up your best lamb or game meat dishes. Hmm, better make that a dozen!
