2014 Villa Maria Reserve Gimblett Gravels Syrah

From the finest Syrah vintage in living memory - breathtaking quality!

Cuisine 5 Stars Bob Campbell MW 96/100

Description

Villa Maria have the most extensive holdings in the Gimblett Gravels, with 148ha of the total 800 (which doesn't include the vineyards owned by Vidal and Esk). From these impressive holdings, they select only the finest parcels of Syrah to go into their Gimblett Gravels Reserve. 2014 was as good as it gets for growing Syrah, certainly the finest year they have had since forming GGWA in the early 2000s. This wine is a veritable showcase for the grape's boundless potential in NZ - a wine of complete harmony that shows beautifully in its youth but will become a truly great wine from 2020 onwards.

Smells

Heady florals and eastern spices, blackcurrants, plum, leather and dark chocolate.

Tastes

Immensely concentrated and succulently fruited, all held in place by fine grained tannins and a fresh cool-climate acid line. A majestic Syrah to enjoy by the fireside or with good cuts of red meat flame grilled on the BBQ and served alfresco. Now to 2026.
