Hawkes Bay Syrah

Distinguished by its bright, spicy flavours and elegant texture, New Zealand Syrah is fast becoming the darling of the international wine media. You’ll easily detect its intense varietal distinctiveness, crammed full of plum and savoury black pepper flavours and sometimes even a hint of violets.

Tasting Notes

The nose of this intriguing wine reveals floral and spice aromas with notes of red plum, smoked bacon and black pepper. The palate contributes flavour's of juicy dark berries, wrapped up with silky smooth tannins. This is a supple and highly approachable wine which is excellent with food.

Herb crusted red meats and game, especially venison, dishes featuring spice and a variety of cheeses.

Vineyards and Winemaking

2021 was an outstanding vintage in Hawkes Bay. The fruit was harvested, then destemmed with a mix of crushed and whole berry into stainless steel fermenters for fermentation with Rhone isolate yeasts. After pressing and malolactic, the wine was transferred to a mixture of tanks and seasoned oak barriques for maturation. After 20 months maturation on light lees, the wine was blended, lightly egg white fined and filtered before bottling.
