As with all Te Awa wines our Syrah is a direct expression of our unique terroir.
It is deeply coloured with intriguing aromatics of dark flowers, sweet red fruits and a grind of pepper and spice. This follows on to a rich and warm, velvety textured palate with vibrant flavours.

Winery Tasting Notes
Te Awa Syrah is deeply red coloured with violet hues.
Aromas of dark berry fruit are complemented by secondary characters of black pepper, liquorice and mocha.
The palate is complex, with sweet fruit flavours of plum and red berries balanced by savoury game characters and spicy oak. Medium bodeid in weight, a balanced acidity to the wine gives it a freshness and complements the supple and finely grained tannins.
Ideal with wild game or richly flavoured red meats.
Drinking well upon release this wine could be cellared with confidence for seven to ten years.
