Smith and Sheth 2018 Cru Heretaunga Syrah (Hawke's Bay)

#48 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2021
Return to List

This is a precise, tightly knit wine for the cellar that beautifully captures both the power and the elegance of Hawke's Bay Syrah. Like a hug in a glass, it offers comforting aromas of melted chocolate, baking spice, ground pepper, fresh bramble berries and a hint of something more mineral. The palate is broad but focused. The tannins are beautifully textured, talc-like and spicy, cradling the pristine fruit. Drink through 2040. Christina Pickard
