Grown on the Taupo Pumice Sands on Ngatarawa Road, Louis 2007 was a standout example from one of the ripest and most highly regarded Hawkes Bay Syrah vintages. Now at its beautiful peak at 7 years old, there's plenty of great drinking left in it.
Smell - A powerful and mature nose of blueberry, smoke, plum, spice, hints of undergrowth and dark chocolate.
Taste - The incredibly rich but finely structured palate has a plethora of black fruits, cured meat, nutmeg and cracked pepper complementing the savoury notes that come from bottle aging in perfect conditions.
