Description

Swing back the rustic cellar gate with its large EV (Esk Valley) insignia welded to it and its like you are stepping back in time. Little has changed in the original concrete cellars since the 1930’s but this adds charm and intrigue, and the feeling of being instantly transported to a cellar in Europe. Winemaking legend Gordon Russell is the stalwart of this winery and consistently makes incredible wines, wines that show a sense of place, varietal typicity and with charm and poise. This Winemakers Reserve Syrah 2016 only made in the best vintages and in tiny quantities; 150 cases in total, is not to be missed. It shows all the hallmarks of a classic Hawkes Bay Syrah from a stellar vintage; rich, concentrated and with a complex vein running the entire length of the palate. The rewards of cellaring this wine for 5-8 years are endless, but if you cant resist, decant just prior to serving.

Smells

dark berry fruits; blackberries, mulberries and blueberries aromas prevail, giving way to plums, cinnamon, mace, complexing notes of roasted vegetables and an alluring earthy and tarry vein.

Tastes

this wine screams of an excellent Hawkes Bay Syrah with deep, powerful fruit, enveloped in a taught structure and wrap around tannins that coat the cheeks. Unbelievably moorish. Those same dark fruit flavours persist on the palate all intertwined with herbal, earthy, cedar and forest floor nuances, resulting in a stunning wine, highlighting the class of the fruit, the season, the winemaker and this prestigious NZ brand. Serve with your favourite roasted red meats.
