CRAGGY RANGE Gimblett Gravels LE SOL 2019 $150

2021 marks 20 years since the very first Le Sol syrah was produced and since then it’s only been released when the fruit is faultless and every vintage has a skite sheet stacked with accolades from across the globe. 2019 is next level. The Le Sol style is one of purity and power, delicacy and decisiveness, with violets and blueberries dusted with pepper and graphite. The tannins are svelte and suede-like and it just dances across the tongue.  It’ll only become more sublime over the coming decade.
