Slightly more lifted and peppery than the Stone bottling, Elephant Hill's 2017 Airavata Syrah similarly includes a smidge of Viognier (1%). It's plummy and spicy on the nose, with hints of fresh blueberries and violets acting to keep it lively and fresh. Medium to full-bodied, it's rich and velvety on the palate, with terrific depth and texture on the lingering finish.
Deep, ruby-red with a hint of purple underlay, lighter on the rim. The nose is gently full, with power and depth, penetrating aromas of blackberries and plums melded with dark herb and a hint of mealy, meaty note. Full-bodied, concentrated aromas of blackberries and plums enriched by dark herb, violet, savoury, meaty nuances and a touch of pepper. The wine is mouth-filling with weight and broadness, reflecting the concentrated fruit. Fine-grained, powdery tannin contributes to a smooth line direct by integrated, lacy acidity.

Hawke's Bay is a wine region located on the east coast of New Zealand's North Island. The region has a long history of wine production, dating back to the 19th century when French missionaries first planted vines in the area. Today, Hawke's Bay is known for producing some of New Zealand's finest wines, particularly red wines made from Bordeaux grape varieties.

The region's climate is warm and dry, with long, sunny days and cool nights. This combination of factors creates ideal growing conditions for grapes, allowing them to ripen slowly and develop complex flavours. Hawke's Bay is particularly well-suited to growing Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah grapes, which thrive in the region's warm, dry climate.

Hawke's Bay is also known for its Chardonnay wines, which are made from grapes grown in the cooler, coastal areas of the region. These wines are characterised by their crisp acidity, bright fruit flavours, and subtle oak notes.

In addition to wine, Hawke's Bay is also home to a thriving craft spirits industry. The region's distilleries produce a range of spirits, including gin, vodka, and whisky, using locally-sourced ingredients and traditional production methods.

Overall, Hawke's Bay is a region that offers a diverse range of high-quality wines and spirits, with a focus on traditional production methods and a commitment to sustainability. Whether you're a wine lover or a spirits enthusiast, there's something for everyone to enjoy in this beautiful corner of New Zealand.
