Hand-harvested at perfect ripeness the wine retains the fresh boysenberry and raspberry characteristics as well as the classic, lingering peppery spice that is typical of the region.

About

90 Points

"The trademarks of Hawke’s Bay are well and truly on show. Overt black pepper, a shot of graphite, plenty of black cherried fruit and assertive, spicy tannin. It’s dry, it’s peppery, it lays out the ground rules and then milks the moment."

Deep garnet with a vibrant purple hue. Fresh boysenberries and blackberries combine with freshly cracked black pepper and baking spices for an attractive nose. A burst of red and black berries on palate entry with fine grained dusty tannins which carry long to the soft, savoury finish.

Hawke's Bay

Hawke's Bay

Hawke’s Bay’s Gimblett Gravels are deep and porous which reduces vigorous growth and decreases heat retention. This allows the fruit on the vines to ripen perfectly and gives Syrah from the region the world-class distinction of wines with sensational elegance and beautifully defined aromatics. The region was once an ancient river bed, and our Gimblett Gravels vineyard has been planted following the old river flows to ensure uniformity of gravel depth and optimum ripeness.
