Villa Maria

Villa Maria 'Anniversary Release' Syrah Gimblett Gravels 2011 Hawke's Bay 14%
Powerful, rich and bold bouquet suggesting black fruits, burnt raspberry, smoked meats, wild red violet flowers and a gravelly earthy quality. Overall very complex, youthful and distinctive. On the palate -  dry, warm, richly fruity, expressive and highly textured; fruit & meaty flavors reflect the nose and with plenty of concentration to offset the lightly sweet and toasty oak drive; medium+ acidity; drink now or cellar through 2017.
5 Stars
