Craggy Range Le Sol Syrah 2019



Availability: 100 in stock

One of New Zealand’s best loved icon wines, this 100% syrah from the Gimblett Gravels in Hawke’s Bay is a great bottle. Inky dark colour, with an intense perfume of violets, black pepper spice and blackcurrant that continues on the concentrated palate. More savoury spice and game character will develop with time in cellar.

Le Sol (French: the soil) is born of the renowned Gimblett Gravels viticultural appellation, with its gravelly soils attracting the sun in summer and insulating the vines in winter. The vines are planted in the stoniest parts of the vineyard to a heritage clone of Syrah brought to New Zealand in the 1840s. Intensively hand managed, the grapes reveal a deep dark Syrah with purple hues. Le Sol is always aromatically pure with a luscious yet elegant mid-palate and a distinctive fine tannin finish.
