GIMBLETT GRAVELS VINEYARD
A PLACE OF WARMTH AND GRAVELLY SOILS

Hawke's Bay

39˚ 35' 57.2"S 176˚ 44' 5.6"E

The Gimblett Gravels Winegrowing District resulted from a flood in 1876 when the Ngaruroro River changed its course and a vista of gravel was left behind. The area is a place of warmth, stone and sandy alluvial soils. This unique combination alongside other climatic factors such as sunshine hours, humidity and rainfall means the gravels retain heat and lead to optimum ripening for Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet. The stylistic characters of red wines from the vineyard are richness, ripeness and elegance with a distinctive fine dusty tannin finish. Chardonnay is also grown on the vineyard with distinctive floral notes and pronounced minerality on the palate.

Full of spices. Thick purple hue, woody, black pepper, slight cinnamon, black olive, blackberry, black currant. dry, mid+ firm acidity and mid tannin. mid bitterness. Dense but structured and dry style give slightly more alcoholic image than actual 13% but within good balance. Can drink now and can age more to harmonise. ABV13%
