Tasting Notes

Dark fruits, allspice, and hints of game. A beautifully structured wine with integrated oak, fine tannins and an abundance of fruit. A robust Syrah that demands your attention and will reward your patience if you chose to cellar. This wine is drinking well now but can be cellared for up to 10 years.

Wine Review

Vineyards and Winemaking

This wine is entirely from grapes grown in our Tantallon Vineyard in Hawke’s Bay. The grapes were harvested from the Tantallon vineyard and transported to our Riverview winery were they were crushed to open topped stainless steel fermentation vessels and inoculated with a range of yeast strains. The ferments were pumped over several times per day until dry and then allowed from two to five days extended maceration. The wine was then pressed off the skins and put to barrel where it was aged for 18 months. The wine was then transported by road tanker to our Katikati winery for final blending and finishing. Bottling was in August 2017.
