Crossroads, Syrah, Hawkes Bay, 2010
Whereas a decade ago all the focus in Hawkes Bay was on Bordeaux varieties, there’s now an acknowledgement that Syrah can achieve heights there too. This example comes from a vineyard in the midst of the famed Gimblett Gravels.
Soft ruby. Pleasing scent of berries - consistent with a berried, lively palate, both juicy and fleshy. Very much in a northern Rhône rather than Australian mode, a really poised and supple example. Now-2014
