Dark berry fruit aromas with layers of spice and floral notes. Rich berry fruit flavours with a velvety texture, supported by fine tannins.

Only made in exceptional vintages, this wine was grown in the Bridge Pa triangle sub-region of Hawkes Bay. Warm temperatures, coupled with free draining red metal gravels provide the idea conditions for growing Syrah. Crops were thinned down to one bunch per shoot to provide ripe and concentrated fruit flavours.

Fruit for this EV wine was de-stemmed and partially crushed, then fermented in a mixture of open top and closed top tanks. The open fermenters were hand plunged and the closed top were rummaged and pumped over for extraction. Inoculated with cultivated yeasts to promote fruit aromatics, the wine was also co-inoculated for malolactic fermentation during primary fermentation. Fermentation took on average seven days, with a three-week post maceration before pressing. The wine was racked to French barriques (225L) and matured for ten months before being blended and bottled. The final blend consists of 60% new oak.
