Two Gates 2008 Syrah & Omahu

11-Sep-2012

Last month I reviewed the two 2009 wines from the new Two Gates Gimblett Gravels producer. They were rather impressive, and the quality of the outstanding vintage was apparent, but the elegant style as preferred by the owners and made by winemaker Tony Prichard shone through. The certified BioGro organic site with its near 18 ha of vines may have an influence on the nature of the wines as well, and time will no doubt reveal the input of all these factors. The 2007s were actually the first vintage released, and the 2009s are about to be, but I have been presented with the 2008s to review, of which there is a very limited quantity still available. www.twogates.co.nz
