Refined and elegant, with concentrated fruit and pepper characters
Syrah is easily detected for its intense varietal distinctiveness, crammed full of dark fruit and pepper character and often floral notes.
New Zealand Syrah can be distinguished by its bright fruit and fragrant spicy characteristics, and elegant texture.
The fruit for our Syrah is all sourced from the hot, dry Hawkes Bay region, from different several sites in and around the famed Gimblett Road area.
Hawkes Bay Syrah has deep berry fruit, violet and savoury pepper aromas and a palate that features plum, spice and wild herb notes, complemented by silky smooth tannins.
Syrah is an excellent food wine, particularly when paired with dishes featuring game, such as duck or venison.
