Trophy for Champion Syrah and Predominant Blends - NZ International Wine Show 2022
Trophy for Champion New Zealand Syrah - NZ International Wine Show 2022
A quintessential expression of Gimblett Gravels Syrah that will develop complex mineral, gamey characters with bottle age. A great accompaniment with red meat dishes, especially duck and venison.
Gimblett Gravels Syrah
Captivating floral and perfumed aromas of ripe raspberries and blackberries, along with hints of Chinese five spice, black liquorice, and vanilla bean, lead to a concentrated yet vibrant palate where refined tannins and refreshing acidity combine to create a supple, silky texture and a spicy, succulent finish of outstanding length.

Trophy for Champion International Red Wine Varieties - NZ International Wine Show 2022
Gold Medal - Hawkes Bay Wine Show 2022
Red meat or pork would be an ideal match as well as traditional Tapas-style dishes.
Gimblett Gravels Tempranillo (last stocks)
The 2021 Gimblett Gravels Tempranillo delivers the richness, generosity, and structure one expects from the variety. Attractive raspberry/blackberry aromas, along with liquorice, sweet spices, and dark chocolate, lead to a palate crammed with red/black fruit flavours. Tannins, with the consistency of cocoa powder, and vibrant acidity, contribute a mouthcoating texture and juiciness to the palate, which finishes long, succulent, and refreshing.
