Villa Maria Reserve Gimblett Gravels Hawkes Bay Syrah

Deep, almost inky purple hues lead to a dense and perfumed nose of pepper, black liquorice and graphite, alongside fragrant notes of violets and cocoa.

SOILS AND VITICULTURE

Villa Maria’s Reserve Syrah vineyards are located in the Gimblett Gravels of Hawkes Bay. This unique and highly prized area of land is fast becoming recognised as having superb growing conditions for producing Syrah of world class standard. The free-draining soils, warm daytime temperatures and cool nights encourage naturally devigourated vines to ripen their low yields slowly and evenly. These factors, along with well-timed vineyard management techniques ensure the resulting wines are deeply coloured and well structured, with pure aromatics and flavours classic to the variety.

TASTING NOTE

A stunning Reserve Syrah, blended from the best parcels from our premium vineyards in Hawkes Bay’s Gimblett Gravels. Deep, almost inky purple hues lead to a dense and perfumed nose of pepper, black liquorice and graphite, alongside fragrant notes of violets and cocoa. Refined tannins provide for wonderful texture, encasing concentrated fruit characters on the palate which steadily build towards a long finish. Careful cellaring will reward with further complexity over many years.
