Babich, Syrah, Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand, 750ml
These grapes were harvested after a long steady ripening through late summer/ early autumn from our Gimblett Road vineyard in Hawke’s Bay. The fruit was fermented in open vats with frequent plunging of the “cap”. After an extended period on skins young wine was drained to new (35%) and old French oak for maturation for a period of 9 months. Beautifully scented, dark fruits, dark spice and raspberry. Elegant and concentrated sweet and savoury notes embrace fine, dense tannins. Sweet, earthy spices linger on the finish.
