This 2018 Craggy Range Le Sol Syrah wine has deep and dark with a purple hue. An overwhelming presence that suggests this Syrah wine will live to be iconic. The nose is flush with mulberry, violets, lavender and cocoa. The palate has suave, smooth and concentrated dark berries, presented in a very neatly articulated array of ripe, regal tannins. This Le Sol Syrah wine has a great depth and resolve. The 2018 Craggy Range Le Sol Syrah wine is perhaps the most confident, self-assured expression of Syrah to yet emerge from this benchmark producer. This is a stellar vintage of Craggy’s Range’s premium Hawkes Bay Syrah.
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.
This Craggy Range Le Sol Syrah wine is best paired with Braised beef and strong blue-based cheese.
