Selaks Winemaker’s Favourite Syrah has been sourced predominantly from the renowned Gimblett Gravels area of Hawke’s Bay.
Deep ruby red, the wine has a bouquet of raspberry and cherry, with peppery highlights. Ripe blackberry flavours with signature black pepper notes are threaded with coffee and mocha characters. The palate is well balanced and rich, supported by a fine tannin structure,that lingers generously on the finish.
The wine will continue to improve for four years after bottling.
- Colour: Deep red with purple hues.
- Nose: A lifted blackberry nose with signature black pepper notes, and appealing oak character.
- Palate: A soft, mouth filling wine with immediate appeal and drinkability. Sweet blackberry notes dominate the mid palate, and soft, ripe dusty tannins coat the finish.
