Craggy Range Le Sol Syrah Gimblett Gravels 2010

100% Syrah from vineyards in the renowned Gimblett Gravels region of Hawkes Bay.

Intensively hand managed, destemmed fruit was harvested into open top French oak cuves. Maturation in French oak barriques, 38% new, for 18 months. 

Winemaker's Comments

An opaque black purple core with vivid crimson rim. Aromatically, tar, black pepper, cedar,  rose and a hint of fennel season the ripe, abundant blackberry characters. The palate is svelte where sweet flavours of melted liquorice and dark fruit coat the fine tannins. Flavoursome and long.
