Description

Te Awa means 'River of God' in Maori - named after the dry river bed affectionately known as the Gimblett Gravels in the Hawke's Bay. This wine offers great drinking and punches well above its weight, no doubt helped by the fact that the winery is under the stewardship of Villa Maria. The 2017 vintage began great, but late rains and cooler temperatures made the vintage tricky. Good wine was still there to be made and this Single Estate wine shows generous fruits and spice, with the vanilla and nutty notes that come from maturation in French Oak.

Smells

bright red berries, plum and spice notes with a pleasant kiss of vanilla and subtle dried herb.

Tastes

Juicy and sweetly fruited, the dusty tannins and fresh acid line give the classic Hawke's Bay freshness and feel. A classy wine to enjoy in its youth, it can be cellared with confidence for 5-8 years (depending on how leathery and savoury you like your Syrah!)

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
