Description

  • Oaked
  • Black Doris plum
  • Violets
  • Mixed spices

"Wonderfully fragrant and inviting, the bouquet shows Black Doris plum, blueberry compote, vanilla and cedar characters, leading to a fruit-expressive palate that is plump and rounded. The wine offers pristine fruit flavours together with elegant texture and fine tannins, finishing lingering and succulent" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2018

The fruit for this Syrah was carefully selected from the winegrowing district of  Hawkes Bay. The vineyard site has ideal ripening conditions for achieving the intense aromatics and delicate structure that Syrah can give.  The wine is perfumed with exotic aromas of violets, rich cherry and mixed spices. The palate is elegant and luscious displaying full flavours of mixed summer berries and a hint of spice leading to a long complex toasty finish.

Fruit for this wine was held cold for four days before fermentation to help extract maximum flavour and colour. The wine was aged in a mixture of  French oak and stainless steel and underwent malolactic fermentation before being prepared for bottling. Perfect for drinking immediately this wine will continue to develop and delight for at least 5 years.  

Food Pairing: Enjoy with wild duck or marinated venison back steaks.

I've tried many quaffers in this price range and I always return to my old favourite wondering why I left
