Two Gates Gimblett Gravels Syrah 2008 Hawke's Bay
N:Seductive velvet expression with a concentration of dark red fruits laced with oak spices and ageing meat thoughts. The bouquet is raw and youthful yet packed with the idea of great things to come. There is a hint of diesel interwoven with the gravel soil undertones. Medium+ complexity.
P: Full-bodied, peppery and bold with fresh fruit and oak flavors - fast and powerful attack - like a machine gun firing shots of flavor on the palate. Dry with its big tannins and high youthful acidity - this wine has concentration and finish to meld into harmony over the next 5 years. 90 Points.
