Gimblett Gravels The Gimblett Merlot Blend 2011

You can tell by the nose how the wine will be..

Focused fruit wrapped in eucalyptus wafts.
The Aroma matches the beginning of the Wines flavors, medium bodied, gravel, Tobacco, blackberry, cherry stem, (You tie enough of them, you get the taste) black pepper - which seems to be a theme for this winery- and cara cara orange acidity, with a firm tannic finish.
Classy wine.

A passion fruit, peach. A gooseberry doesn't dominate. It's a pity. — 4 days ago

Estate Vineyards Hawke's Bay Syrah 2018

Deceptively simple?New Zealand syrah with a cool climate DNA. Waiting for day 2. And day 2: better, fuller, lovely. Smooth & velvety texture are the bywords.

Gimblett Gravels Syrah 2016

Color of purple and ruby. Deep color yet quite clear. Nose of nice raspberry and cherry, good aldehyde and oak, licorice, a bit wet mushroom. In fact the nose feels like decent full body Pinot noir. Taste follows the nose with addition of prune, black pepper, low tannins, zest, blackberry, dried berries. Clean and very flavorful. Aftertaste snow some more zest, ripe grapes, and peppery note. Very good. — a month ago
