Anthony Joseph Vidal of Hawkes Bay
Vidal Reserve Syrah 2017 Gimblett Gravels, Hawkes Bay
Immediately appealing bouquet of Syrah with aromas of raspberry and dark cherry, peppercorn and vanilla oak spice, a violet and plum layer and fresh youthful vibrancy. Dry, peppery, fruity and tasty. A wine with firm(ish) tannins, plenty of acidity and a core of red stone fruit and raspberry. Well made, balanced and ready to enjoy. Drink now and through 2022.
