Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Rich in pepper, black fruits, liquorice, dried herbs, toasty char, vanilla, coffee and new oak, the 2015 ‘Hillside’ Syrah is vibrant and exciting. The vineyard site is northerly facing, and the winemaking is tailored to this terroir. The ‘Hillside’ Syrah is an expression of where it is grown and is best summed up as ‘unique’. Past awards for this wine endorse its reputation, and justify its place in your cellar."

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"This distinguished red is grown on a sheltered, north-facing slope between Maraekakaho and Bridge Pa, in Hawke's Bay (described by winemaker Peter Robertson as 'surreal – a chosen site'). The 2015 vintage, matured in new French (mostly) and American oak casks, is deeply coloured, fragrant and concentrated, with deep, ripe blackcurrant, spice, plum and black-pepper flavours, a hint of liquorice, and lovely density and smoothness. Best drinking 2018+."

 5 Stars & 19.0/20 Raymond Chan, October 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"Dark, deep, black-hued purple red colour, very youthful in appearance, a little lighter on the rim. This has a well concentrated and firmly packed nose with ripe and exotic fruit aromas of dark-red and black-berried fruits along with a harmoniously entwined array of dark red and violet florals unveiling nuances of Asian spices, black pepper, black minerals and aromatic new, toasty oak. Medium-full bodied, the palate features concentrated, rich and luscious flavours of blackberry fruit with violet floral, black pepper, exotic spice notes and sweet, oak The fruit is underlined by fine-grained tannin extraction that forms a refine core and structure, and the mouthfeel is enriched and enlivened by fresh acidity. This has a long, concentrated and a deep, dense line that carries to a long finish of blackberries, plums and liquorice with exotic spices and new toasty oak lift. This is a rich and concentrated Syrah with exotic black fruits, florals, spices and liquorice on a seriously extracted, fine-grained palate. Serve with slow-cooked game meat over the next 8-10 years. Named after the north-facing hillside vineyard in the Bridge Pa district. A mix of MS and 470 clone fruit destemmed and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in predominantly new French and American oak barriques."

92/100 Cameron Douglas MS, Auglust 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Ripe and very fruity with layers of oak, dark berries and spice. Black currant and baked raspberry, toasted olive and pepper, sweet vanilla and blueberry tones. On the palate – ripe and sweet fruited with blueberry and blackberry jam, black currant flesh and brown spices laced with pepper; a lush and tasty wine with medium+ fine to silky tannins, medium acidity and lengthy sweet vanilla and marmite finish. Drink now and through 2026."
