This wine is a blend of fruit grown in stony Hawkes Bay vineyard sites. The vines are trained on a VSP trellis and intensively managed, employing shoot thinning, leaf plucking and bunch thinning to produce high quality fruit.
This is a very ‘varietal’ wine, displaying classic Hawkes Bay Syrah notes of plums, blackberries, pepper and exotic spice notes with subtle oak integration. It is a medium bodied and food friendly style with excellent ageing potential.
Enjoy with red meat dishes. Enjoy for two to eight years post vintage.
