Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"The grapes for this wine were sourced from grapes grown on the gravelly soils of our Gimblett Road vineyard and similar gravels across the Ngaruroro River at Ohiti Road. These warm stony sites provide excellent drainage with very little water retention, ideal for growing premium quality grapes. Intensive viticultural practices including shoot thinning and bunch thinning were employed to maximise quality.

The individual vineyard parcels were destemmed to concrete fermenters and fermented with a mix of wild and cultured yeasts. Hand plunging was employed for colour and tannin extraction and a period of post-fermentation maceration practices before the wine was pressed to barrel for 14 months ageing. A light egg white fining was conducted to soften the tannins prior to bottling.

The colour is youthful medium red. This is an elegant style of Syrah, with red-fruited flavours of raspberries, jam and pepper with a hint of oak spice. The wine is soft and mouth filling but has an underlying acidity providing freshness and length."
