SYRAH 2015 HAWKES BAY
The 2015 Syrah is a blend of both our Syrah blocks.
Picking Date: 7 April 2015 (Arataki Block & House Block)
Meticulous vineyard management then hand picked and colour sorted grapes gave us pristine fruit in the winery. Hand plunging in open top fermenters, basket pressing then extended maturation in French oak gave us the result we wanted.
Bottled under screwcap
Alc 13.4% Vol
8.0 standard drinks
Dense hue with fresh purple rim.
Ripe floral fruit with a hint of cherry and white spice. Subtle oak complements the fruit.
Vibrant fruit and integrated oak, ripe tannins, and soft acidity completes the long elegant finish.
