Vidal 2018 Legacy Gimblett Gravels Syrah (Hawke's Bay)

Give this plenty of time in a decanter. Once open, this is an expressive Syrah (with 3% Viognier) that's savory and meaty. It offers a nose full of cherries, plums, dried herbs and a charred beef character reminiscent of Northern Rhône. There's some dense, earthy oak notes here, too. The palate follows a similar flavor path. It's silky with a crunch to the acidity and a fine tannin structure. A finessed wine set for aging until 2028 or so. Christina Pickard
