Smith and Sheth

Smith and Sheth Syrah 2017 Heretaunga, Gimblett Gravels, Hawkes Bay

Varietal and immediately enticing bouquet of sweet oak and pepper spice, toasty wood and dark berries with raspberry and black currant. Dry, toasty, fruity and spicy on the palate with dusty wood tannins, plenty of acidity, medium+ weight and intensity. The finish is finer with dark cherry and some floral moments. Youthful overall though drinkable today and through 2026.
