Now this is good. Another superb Syrah from the Gimblett Gravels subregion of Hawkes Bay in New Zealand.
Squawking Magpie ‘The Stoned Crow’ Syrah 2008 Gimblett Gravels, Hawkes Bay
A single-vineyard wine aged in new French oak. 13.5% alcohol. Aromatic, peppery nose with black cherries, spice and some clove character. Quite savoury. The palate is fresh and savoury with lively, peppery dark fruits and some dry tannic grip. It’s rich and tannic, with real potential. Give it five years? 93/100
