Vanguardist Hawkes Bay Syrah 2020

$55.00

The 2020 Syrah is sourced from Ash Ridge in the Bridge Pa triangle, Hawkes Bay. Organic certified/in conversion, selection Massale and Chave clones. Both spontaneous ferments, one at 30% whole bunch and the other at 60%. Around 5 weeks on skins with very gentle pigeage prior to pressing. The raw wine was shipped to the Vanguardist winery in Seppeltsfield mid-winter 2020 and spent a further 12 months of elevage in a 22HL Slavonian oak foudre. Winemaker’s Notes

Has a very attractively spicy sheen with plenty of pepper. Blueberry and dark stony elements, as well as graphite, black-cherry and blackberry aromas. Star anise. too. The palate is mid-weight and has a finely dusted tannin texture with cool berry flavors and a sanguine, spicy twist on the finish. Neatly fitted tannins, very tidy. Drink over the next five years. – 93 Points – Nick Stock, JamesSuckling.com
