The fruit for this wine was sourced predominantly from two sites within Hawkes Bay. The free-draining gravely soils and warm temperatures of the Gimblett Gravels encourage low yields and naturally devigourated vines. In conjunction with intensive vineyard management, these factors ensure the resulting fruit is deeply coloured and intensely flavoured, with ripe tannins.

Expert Reviews

4 Stars / 92 Points. The quality on offer here is hard to beat for value in the NZ syrah stakes, sweet spice and complex toasty characters abound, there’s a fine aniseed and pepper edge, plenty of bright, ripe berry aromas too. The palate has a core of sweet ripe purple berry flavour, oak adds sweet musky spices, nicely balanced and flows easily. Nick Stock Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2009 Jan-09

94 Points. This is a seamless, elegant style which is beautifully poised right now and will live well for the medium term, thanks to a bright acidity and finely structured tannins. It’s a beautiful assemblage of savoury spice and black plum and cherry fruit, rippling with waves of black pepper, finishing with great length and line. Tyson Stelzer Wine Buiness Monthly Feb-09

Leathery, aged characater to the nose, with a dash of pepper. More leatheriness on the red plum palate. Winestate 1 Oct-09
