Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"​Premium single vineyard grapes from a great vintage have produced a lovely perfumed, dark concentrated wine. Seamless, with supple tannins this Syrah delivers a smooth and spicy finish."
4 1/2 Stars & Best Buy Cuisine Syrah Tasting, June 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"​A deliciously forward style of Hawke’s Bay syrah, this is one of those wines that disappears with unseemly haste, so always have two bottles on hand! Quietly complex floral and herbal aromas add fragrance to a core of dark fruit of perfect ripeness. It’s soft and fleshy, with lovely length, and ripe, chalky tannins. “A wine of terrific energy,” said John Belsham."
4 1/2 Stars Yvonne Lorkin (2014 Vintage)
"The impenetrable, inky-dark colour saturation is the first thing that gets you with this wine, it’s incredibly dense, dark, a stormcloud in a glass. Perfumed with blackcurrant, cherry and pepper-dusted damson plums, the nose is exciting, spice-driven and has smoke around the edges. Elegantly structured, the core of this wine is dark fruit, exotic spices and a seam of dark cocoa carries its savoury concentration through to the long, pillowy finish where earthy, graphite-like layers appear. It has freshness and verve, nice ‘chew’ and loads of chutzpah."
5 Stars & ​18.5/20 Raymond Chan, April 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"Very dark, saturated black-hued purple-red colour, very youthful in appearance. The nose is elegantly concentrated with intense and penetrating, fragrant aromas of black and dark red berry fruits, firmly entwined with notes of black pepper, violet florals, piquant Asian spices and liquorice. Nuances of funky game and iron-earth add detail. Medium-full bodied, this has a tightly bound core of juicy and succulently rich flavours of ripe blackberry fruit interwoven with plums and black pepper, along with Asian spices and violet florals. The palate is complexed by earth an mineral elements. The tannin extraction is fine-grained, and the mouthfeel is enlivened by bright acidity, providing a concentrated, firm core and line that carries to a long, fine-textured finish. This is a tightly concentrated, rich and succulent Syrah with fine structure and plenty of energy. Match with lamb, beef and venison dishes, and semi-hard cheeses over the next 5-7 years. A single vineyard wine, 100% estate Syrah, fermented to 13.8% alc., the wine aged 18 months in 20% new oak."
