Stonecroft 2018 Reserve Gimblett Gravels Syrah (Hawke's Bay)

This is a big, broody and fairly classic Hawke's Bay Syrah set for the long haul. There's a deep well of comforting aromas: dense black fruits, savory herbs, winter warming spices and a slightly stony, sanguine, mineral nuance amid the oak influence. The door to the palate is more tightly shut. Spicy, granular tannins are powerful and a little astringent. Acidity is lifted. It needs time to knit together with the fruit. However, the cool(ish) climate elegance peeks through the cracks, hinting at a promising future. Drink now with protein until 2030. Christina Pickard
