Vineyard Description

The 2015 season was marginally cooler than average across the board but with a heat spike in March that surpassed the highly acclaimed 2013 and 2014 vintages. Mid-March and early April rainfall presented challenges to Winemakers and the focus became pushing ripening as far as possible without loosing fruit condition. In these seasons the free draining gravel sites come to the fore. As is typical to Hawkes Bay, cooler nights moderated  daytime temperatures and allowed for steady sugar and flavour accumulation across vineyards.

Winemaker's Comment

Dense purple and crimson hues lead to an intensely perfumed nose of violet, black fruit, herb and spice aromas. The palate is medium to full bodied, supple and silky in texture, featuring wonderfully integrated tannins and plush oak. Pure and precise fruit flavours lead the wine to a lengthy finish.

Serving Suggestion

Syrah is an excellent food wine, particularly when paired with dishes featuring spice, duck or venison. Drink now or hold for up to 8 years when the wine will develop further complexity.
