Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2023

The Villa Maria team keep delivering outstanding wines across their ranges and the Syrah is no exception. The 2021 follows on as another exceptional vintage delivering a Syrah that is dark, spicy, juicy, vibrant and supple. This is a very pleasurable wine and superbly priced at sub $20.

Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"Deep purple and crimson hues lead to a perfumed nose of violet, black fruit, herb and anise spice aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, supple and silky in texture, featuring wonderfully integrated tannins. Pure fruit flavours lead the wine to a lengthy finish.

2021 was an exceptional Hawkes Bay vintage, following on beautifully from the previous two vintages of excellent growing conditions. Warmer than average temperatures and low rainfall encouraged fruit across the region to achieve optimum ripeness and maintain excellent condition through the harvest.

The fruit was picked and gently destemmed without crushing into open-top fermenters for fermentation with daily plunging to extract flavour, colour and tannin. Once pressed the wine was matured in 228L French oak barriques of which 18% were new, for 12 months prior to blending and bottling.​​"

94/100, Wine of the Week & Top Value, Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, August 2023 (2021 Vintage)
"Dense, almost inky red with intense, ripe black Doris plum, cassis, dark chocolate, cherry and smoky oak flavours. Youthful wine with a promising future. The product of an excellent vintage. Great value at this price."

4 Stars Michael Cooper (2021 Vintage)
"Still unfolding, the 2021 vintage was grown in the Gimblett Gravels and aged for a year in French oak barriques (18 per cent new). Full-coloured, it is floral, vibrantly fruity and supple, with mouthfilling body, fresh plum, spice and black pepper flavours, showing clearcut varietal characters, and a restrained oak influence. Best drinking mid-2024+."

90/100 Cameron Douglas MS, February 2023 (2021 Vintage)
"A really enticing bouquet and palate with ripe dark red berry fruit scents, blackcurrant and dark raspberry flesh, some light weight peppery spices, toasty barrel and wood smoke moments and a generous fleshy texture. Tannins are youthfully taut and fine with medium+ acidity setting a decent foundation for ripe fruit flavours. Well made, balanced and ready to drink from 2022 through 2027."
