Winemaker Notes

The 2018 vintage followed one of the warmest summers on record. This provided red varietals superb conditions for ripening. Although harvest
commenced early in March with immediate pressure from rain, the majority of the later ripening reds were harvested in excellent condition under blue skies. Fruit grown on stony free-draining sites maintained a healthy condition and concentrated flavours.

This stunning Syrah is a blend of two parcels from our premium vineyards in Hawkes Bay’s Gimblett Gravels. 2018 delivered wonderfully fragrant and intense Syrah wines. Dense purple hues lead to a perfumed nose of boysenberry, spice and violets.

Ripe tannins encase concentrated fruit characters on a long and silky palate. Careful cellaring of up to 10+ years will reward with further complexity.
