Winery notes (2018 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 a medium red, vibrant and youthful. It showcases a nose of raspberries with peppery undertones. On the palate, the wine is mouth-filling, soft with flavours of red berries, jam, pepper and spice but with an underlying acidity providing freshness and length. Delicious as a young wine, it will nevertheless offer excellent cellaring potential."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"Priced sharply, the 2018 vintage was harvested from 12 to 25 year-old vines and matured for 14 months in French oak barriques and puncheons (15 per cent new.) Full-coloured, it is vibrantly fruity and supple, in a medium to full-bodied style with concentrated, ripe, plummy, spicy flavours, showing excellent complexity, harmony and length. Delicious young."


4 Stars Cuisine Syrah Tasting, August 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Unmistakably Hawke’s Bay syrah with the trademark dark and red fruit and plum characteristics with irresistible pepper spice on the nose. A Medium bodied wine, juicy and well-structured wine with fine tannin grip and good oak integration. Great value for money."

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.
