Winemaking and Viticulture

The 2019/2020 growing season in Hawke’s Bay was a warm and dry producing ripe, exuberant, and delicious early drinking Syrah.

Each individual vineyard parcel was harvested separately with the majority of batches de-stemmed prior to fermentation. Gentle daily pumping over of the skins during fermentation helped extract a soft, complex structure. Extended maceration on skins following fermentation helped to further integrate and soften the tannins.

Following extended aging in stainless steel tanks, and a short time in seasoned French oak, the individual blocks were blended to create the ideal marriage of components.

The Wine

Intense blackberry, wild raspberries, red liquorice, and hints of savoury spice combine to produce a fruit dominant complex wine with a subtle touch of oak spice on the finish. The wine is deliberately released young to emphasize the beautiful perfume and fruit freshness.

This wine can happily be enjoyed by the glass or alternatively with a wide range of food, particularly red meat dishes, game, or pasta.
