Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"​Award winning winemaker James Rowan has created a Waiheke Syrah that is synonymous with opulence, extravagance & femininity. Warm berry fruit & black plums worthy of a decadent Roman Emperor. This voluptuous silhouette offers hints of spice that are bound by toasty oak. A seamless structured palate with a bodice that is receptive & candid. SOHO Rosso… inspired by Valentino, created for lovers of perfection.

A beautifully spiced & fragrant wine with layered florals. An earthen framework supports a brave, balanced & vivacious palate – the splendour of Syrah…every time!"


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"​Magnificently crafted and flatteringly classy, this gorgeous syrah displays black/blueberry, dark plum, violet, toasted hazelnut and floral characters with a hint of pepper spice on the nose. It is equally impressive and gratifying on the palate, and delivers waves of delicious fruit flavours together with seductive spicy nuances, brilliantly complemented by silky tannins. At its best: now to 2026."


4 Stars 17.5-/20 Raymond Chan, October 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Full, even, purple-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim and very youthful in appearance. The nose is gently full with up-front aromas of dark raspberry fruit along with white and black pepper, some spice elements and earth, unfolding a lifted floral and herb amalgam. Medium-bodied, the palate has gently mouthfilling flavours of dark raspberries, blackberries with peppery notes, some spice and earth nuances lending good presence. The mouthfeel is harmonious and balanced by light, grainy tannin extraction and integrated acidity. The flavours carry to a gently concentrated, lingering finish of raspberries and herbs. This is a gently mouthfilling, medium-bodied Syrah with dark raspberry, pepper, spices and earthy note on a harmonious and balanced palate with light tannin extraction. Match with Middle Eastern fare over the next 3-4 years. Hand-picked fruit, 100% Syrah from SOHO’s ‘Jomara’ vineyard, fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 9 months in 24% new French, and American oak barriques."
