Gold Medal - International Wine Challenge 2017
From the acclaimed Gimblett Gravels soils in the Hawkes Bay the 2015 Vidal Reserve Syrah is crafted in the same way as the Legacy Syrah at a fraction of the price. It offers terrific drinking with ​fragrant spice, dark red berry and floral notes combining with a balanced and textured palate.
5 Stars &​ 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2017 (2015 Vintage)​
"It is sweetly perfumed on the nose showing dark plum, blueberry, violet, black olive and subtle spicy oak characters. The palate delivers excellent fruit concentration and purity, beautifully complemented by fine texture and polished tannins. The wine is immediate and fabulously expressive, making it delightfully drinkable already. At its best: now to 2021."
90/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2015 Vintage)
"Distinctive and engaging bouquet of black and blue fruits with dark plum and blueberry, dark raspberry then spice; chocolate and toasty oak layer, some pepper and clove. On the palate - flavours of dark berries, toasty oak and spices; flavours of dark plum and toasted raspberry, ripe tannins with a dusty chalky texture, plenty of acidity and a lengthy even finish. Balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2022."
4 Stars & 18.0+/20 Raymond Chan, April 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​Full, near saturated black-red colour with youthful purple hues. The nose is very fresh, with firmly concentrated aromas of ripe blackberry fruit entwined with notes of liquorice and black pepper, unfolding nuances of spices, florals and dame and black mineral detail. Medium-bodied, the palate has rich, sweet and juicy flavours of blackberries, plums and liquorice forming an elegantly concentrated, fine-textured heart, unfolding nuances of spices, florals and minerals. The mouthfeel possesses fine-grained tannin extraction and integrated, balanced acidity, and the wine flows smoothly to a restrained, nuanced finish of black fruits and minerals. This is an elegantly concentrated, sweet-fruited Syrah with blackberry, plum, liquorice and black pepper flavours on a fine-textured palate. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 4-5+ years. Syrah fruit, two-thirds from the ‘Omahu Gravels’ and one-third from the ‘Twyford Gravels’ vineyards in the Gimblett Gravels, destemmed and fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 17 month in 33% new French oak barrels."
