Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"The Gimblett Gravels sub-region of Hawkes Bay displays superb growing conditions for Syrah. With free-draining low fertile soils and warm conditions, naturally devigourated vines crop low yields, resulting in deep coloured and intensely flavoured red wines. Fruit for this wine was sourced predominantly from Villa Maria’s Twyford and Omahu vineyards, in the heart of the Gimblett Gravels.

Deeply coloured with crimson hues in the glass. The nose is layered with sweet blueberry, red plum and peppery spice aromas, underpinned by an aromatic violet lift. The palate is medium-bodied in style with a juicy and supple texture, finishing with rich, silky tannins and generous length."
Number 1 & 5 Stars & Best Buy Cuisine Syrah Tasting, June 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​Villa Maria’s mastery of Hawke’s Bay syrah finds fine expression in this Cellar Selection wine, and its pricing makes it a bargain. Ideal for a beef stir-fry, it has deep colour and an array of delectable aromas that run through raspberries, blueberries, florals and fennel with a hint of vanillin oak. It’s ripely fruity with good flesh and a generous nature, underpinned by poised drying tannins."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com, March 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​The colour is a saturated inky purple magenta. Chocolate and meaty spicy oak fill the bouquet and it has an initial medium-bodied feel with increasing concentration and suggestions of chocolate biscuits with a subtle nuance of mint, an earthy nuggety undercurrent, slightly furry tannins and a meaty finish with accents of pepper and lingering nuances of bbq'd pomegranate molasses."
