Description

The 2017 Te Awa Syrah is a delicate and fragrant wine. Aromas of dark berries are complemented by spicy pepper and attractive floral notes. The palate is complex with sweet fruit flavours of blueberry and raspberry balanced by notes of cedar and the typical Gimblett Gravel's minerality. Medium weight on the palate, the natural acidity and supple tannins give the wine lovely freshness and persistence.

The Te Awa Single Estate Syrah is sourced from their premium vineyard blocks located on the world famous Gimblett Gravels soil, renowned for growing highquality Syrah. These vines are of the “Mass Select” clone, a legendary Hawke's Bay clone derived from vines characterised by superior performance over many generations. The vineyard blocks were intensively managed during the season to produce low yielding high-quality fruit of optimal ripeness.

The start of the 2017 growing season was very warm and dry followed by frequent rainfall throughout the harvest period. The Syrah grapes were harvested, destemmed, and tipped directly into opentop vats. The grapes were allowed to ferment spontaneously with native vineyard yeasts and minimal cap management throughout the ferment resulted in a gentle extraction of flavour. Once dry, the wine was drawn off the skins and aged for a total of 14 months in 300L French oak hogshead barrels (35% new), before being blended and prepared for bottling.
