Craggy Range Le Sol Syrah Gimblett Gravels 2011
100% Syrah from the renowned Gimblett Gravels viticultural appellation in the Hawkes Bay region.
Fruit was hand-harvested and destemmed into fermentation vessels, which were a combination of open top French oak cuves and open top stainless steel tanks. Inoculated fermentation with maturation in 35% new French oak barriques.
Deep and dark in colour with purple hues. Aromas of sweet blackberries complemented by subtle hints of bark, cocoa and freshly cracked black pepper. On the palate an elegant core of black fruits is layered with dusty, dry tannin and refreshing acidity.
