Gimblett Gravels Vineyard Syrah 2018
“It’s fun to drink, showing off the variety’s potential for early-drinking charm.” – Wine Advocate
A lush and peppery Syrah from the gravelly soils of Hawke’s Bay. Wines like this are why Gimblett Gravels has such a stellar reputation.
Ripe red and black fruit, violet, rose, black pepper, blueberry, Provençal herbs and dark chocolate notes combine with baking spices and dusty tannins from the 16 months in French oak barriques. This is one of our go-to wines for any lamb-based dish (especially if it has lots of thyme, rosemary and garlic), chocolatey Mexican mole or roasted aubergine.
Terry Peabody’s wife and daughter convinced him to establish a family wine business in the 1990s. After travelling the world in search of the perfect spot, he settled on Gimblett Gravels in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. This spot was chosen because of his love of big reds, particularly Syrah and Bordeaux. Today, Craggy Range is one of New Zealand’s most prestigious and highly awarded wine producers, boasting an enviable portfolio spanning various varieties and regions. What unites them is world-class winemaking, uncompromising attention to detail and technical excellence. Craggy Range is a member of the New Zealand Fine Wine Classification and were crowned New Zealand Winery of the Year in 2017 by leading wine writer Bob Campbell MW.
