Description:

Aromas:
Generous yet elegant this Syrah displays an abundance of ripe sweet dark plums and dark berries with pepper and spice and integrated smooth supple tannins.
Palate:
Beautifully balanced with smoky toasty oak, this complex wine will soften and develop more savoury notes with careful cellaring.

Food and Wine Match:

An ideal match for a wide range of highly flavoured red meats and game dishes.

Cellaring:

Sourced from selected vineyard blocks in the sunny Hawke’s Bay, and matured in fine grained French oak barrels.

Harvest Notes:

Hawke's Bay experienced fine, warm and dry weather, ideal for balanced vine growth and fruit development. February was exceptional, warm and fine weather persisted well into early Autumn, allowing the luxury of picking at optimal maturity.

Fermentation Notes:

The fruit was gently de-stemmed, then crushed into small fermenters that were both pumped over and punched down up to three times daily through the active phase of fermentation. After fermentation was complete each tank was left on skins for an extended maceration period to aid the integration and softening of the tannins. This post-fermentation maceration lasted up to an additional 20 days, giving a total time on skins of 26 days.

Maturation Notes:

Sourced from selected vineyard blocks in the sunny Hawke’s Bay, and matured in fine grained oak barrels.
