Description

  • Ripe blackberries
  • Dark plum
  • Subtle spice & vanilla
  • Toasty finish

"The wine exhibits gorgeous fruit purity and elegance, showing lifted aromas of dark plum, blueberry compote, violet and subtle black pepper on the nose. The palate is beautifully weighted and juicy, and delivers vibrant fruit flavours backed by silky texture and polished tannins. Wonderful value for money, this charming expression offers terrific drinking" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jul 2017

This delicious Hawke's Bay Syrah displays aromas of violets, black cherry with hints of spice and vanilla. The palate is rich and layered with flavours of ripe blackberries and dark plums.  An elegant structure, powdered tannin and a long complex toasty finish.

The fruit was held cold for four days prior to ferment to help extract maximum flavour and to enhance colour. It was then racked off to a mixture of stainless steel and French Oak..  It was then gently extracted, blended and prepared for bottling. Drinking beautifully now this W5 Syrah can be enjoyed young or with careful cellaring will mature over the next 5 years from vintage date.

Food Pairing: Enjoy with wild duck or venison or rich chocolate based desserts.
