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 2018 vintage was picture perfect, and this Single Estate wine shows all the hallmarks of that great vintage... Generous fruits and spice, with the vanilla and nutty notes that come from maturation in expensive French Oak barrels of which 35% were new.

Smells

Bright red berry, dark plum and spice aromas with seductive hints of vanilla and subtle dried herbs.

Tastes

The palate is sweetly fruited and juicy, the dusty tannins and fresh acid adding classic Hawke's Bay freshness and feel. A classy Syrah to enjoy in its youth, it can be cellared with confidence for 5-8 years and will reveal leatherier, savoury characters with age.
