This Reserve Syrah is from the original vine cuttings Alan Limmer famously planted in the Gimblett Gravels in 1984. NZ’s oldest Syrah vines… 35-years old at the time of this fabulous 2019 harvest. Our panel described it as a beast of a Syrah, referring to its imposing opulence and bold tannins. It has impressive Rhone-like complexity, its power and structure should see it cellar worthy for 15-20 years. Modern day (since 2010) Stonecroft owners Dermot and Andria continue to do justice to Alan Limmer's Stonecroft legacy… changing the vineyards to 100% bio-organic and focusing on low fruit yields. Their vineyard work and winemaking are without compromise and the old vines have showed their class once again in the superb 2019 vintage.


Deep, leathery, cassis and plum, with exotic spice and dried herbs and spice… it’s captivating!


Super opulent, spicy and concentrated with every dark fruit known to man, coupled with some leathery/barnyard nuances. This powerful Syrah ideally needs to be left a few more years to integrate its big tannins; want a sneaky peak first… get a special cut of red meat out, slosh it into a decanter, sit back and enjoy the awakening of your olfactory senses! Hide some in the cellar, pull it out in 15 years and serve with a juicy prime cut of beef, it will be etched in your memory.
