Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"This wine is based on our Chalk Ridge block, just to the south of Havelock North. It is a steep, north facing amphitheatre that is strewn with fossilised limestone. The essence of Hawkes Bay Syrah: masses of black fruits, a touch of pepper, some meatiness and lovely, savoury oak. A beautifully structured wine. Medium to full bodied with silken tannins and great length. The fruit in the mid palate lasts and lasts."
5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, October 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Very dark, deep, purple hued ruby-red, a little lighter on the rim, youthful in appearance. The nose is taut and tightly bound with intense aromas of ripe blackberries and dark raspberries, along with plums and violet florals, and nuances of spice, hints of jam, and savoury, nutty oak. Medium-bodied, the palate has rich and sweet, vibrant and bright flavours of dark raspberries with blackberry notes, entwined with violet florals, black pepper and spices, unfolding succulent jam nuances and nutty oak. The fruit sweetness is the feature, and is supported by fine-grained tannin extraction and fine underlying acidity. The palate has grip and a long, lingering finish. This is a well-balanced Syrah with sweet and juicy blackberry and raspberry fruit, with pepper, spice, florals and jam notes on a fine-grained, textural palate. Serve with lamb, beef and venison over the next 5-6 years. Syrah fruit from the ‘Chalk Ridge’ block, south of Havelock, and a small amount of Gimblett Gravels fruit, co-fermented with 1.53% Viognier to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 50% new French oak. Drink 2017 - 2023."

4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"The classy 2015 vintage is a single-vineyard red, offering fine value. Floral and deeply coloured, it is still youthful, with excellent density of plummy, spicy, peppery, distinctly varietal flavours and a long, finely textured finish. Full-bodied, it's a very ageworthy wine, likely to be at its best 2019+."
