Woodthorpe is an expansive single vineyard on elevated river terraces, angled to the sun, located in Hawkes Bay’s Tutaekuri river valley. Originally a colonial settlement, militia encampment, and staging post, it was between 1863 and 1914 home to the annual Woodthorpe races. Today it’s ideal aspect and free-draining soils provide Te Mata Estate a unique location for quality grapes.

This syrah has a touch of white viognier, a traditional winemaking technique in France’s Rhône Valley. It introduces a delightful floral aroma and supple texture to syrah’s spicy dark-berry flavours.
