Description

  • Spicy oak
  • Ripe blackberries
  • Dired herbs
  • Velvety tannins

"This is immediately appealing on the nose showing dark cherry, cranberry, mixed spice and floral characters with a hint of toasted nut complexity. It is juicy and vibrant on the palate, and offers youthful fruit intensity as well as attractive savoury undertones, beautifully complemented by silky texture. Friendly, flavoursome and excellent value for money" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2017

A lifted nose of black cherry and ripe blackberries mingled with wafts of spicy oak.  Luscious  full-bodied and concentrated with ripe flavours of dark summer berries, dried herbs and spices, and a hint of vanilla. The elegant structure and balanced acidity with velvety tannins leads to a long complex toasty finish. 

This wine was sourced from vineyards within the winegrowing district of Hawkes Bay. The vigour moderating, free draining gravel provides as superb base of this low cropping Syrah. The fruit was carefully monitored during ripening and harvested in the cool evening at maximum flavor maturity and physiological ripeness.
Delicious with wild duck or venison.

Drink now or will cellar well for at least another five years from vintage date.
