GOLD MEDAL - San Francisco International Wine Awards 2020

"Plenty of intense lime and passionfruit aromas here with mango, too. The palate has a very supple, fleshy feel with beautifully fresh acidity holding tropical-fruit flavours long and fresh. Drink now."

From our Babich estate-owned vineyards in both the Gimblett Gravels and Bridge Pa Triangle regions, this Hawke’s Bay Syrah offers delicate raspberry and floral flavours in a light, fresh and peppery style. It is sometimes co-fermented with a small amount of Viognier

Syrah from both the Bridge Pa and Gimblett Gravels sub-regions were co-fermented with a small percentage of Viognier grapes. After a period of maceration on skins, the wines were run off to oak and left to mature for 6 months.

Dark berries and plum aromas with a sweet earthy note, vanilla and nutmeg. Medium weight with good volume and fine coating tannins. Flavours led by black and red cherries, followed by raspberry, cedar and a lingering spice with plum.
