Winery notes (2012 Vintage)
"The journey of each Single Vineyard wine starts in a Marlborough vineyard selected for its unique terroir and climate. They are then nurtured with meticulous hands-on viticulture to ensure fruit produces highly concentrated flavour. Our winemaking expertise then allows these wines to speak for themselves, their purity becoming a showcase of the land.

Established in 1993, Clayvin Vineyard was Marlborough’s first significant hillside vineyard. North facing, the vineyard planting is high density. This density creates natural competition among the vines, reducing vigour, promoting root structure and intensity of flavour. It also means that the vineyard only produces ‘one bottle of Clayvin Syrah per vine’.

On the nose our Single Vineyard Clayvin Syrah has beautiful, bright, aromatic fruit aromas of blueberry and plum which meld with violet, cinnamon and nutmeg unlined with an aniseed influence. Its powerful palate is full of texture and concentration with a lingering savoury finish."


Decanter 2015 (2012 Vintage)
"​Lovely, inviting aromas of cracked pepper, rose petal and spice, grace a nose of real lift and personality. The ripe but pretty palate is no less charismatic, with its sweet core of rich, generous fruit, underpinned by excellent quality oak - augmenting the wine's spicy character - and topped with a juicy, long finish."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2012 Vintage)
From mature vines in the Brancott Valley, the 2012 vintage is dark, with a fragrant, peppery, spicy, earthy, savoury bouquet. It has rich, ripe plum, spice and dried-herb flavours, strongly seasoned with oak, and good texture and complexity.
