Vidal of Hawkes Bay ‘Legacy’ Syrah2014 Gimblett Gravels Hawkes Bay
Dark, broody, smoky, toasty, peppery and fruity with a very youthful masculine charm; aromas and flavours of blue berry and black currant, baked raspberry then fresh black pepper, baked field mushroom and sweet meat. Firm, dry and very youthful on the palate with medium++ acidity, firm and ripe tannins adding grip and chalky texture; plenty of oak flavours and a long finish. A wine that needs decanting or ageing. Best from 2020 through 2030++.
