Winery notes (2013 Vintage)
"The 2013 Te Awa Syrah is deeply coloured with violet hues.  Aromas of dark berries are complemented by secondary characters of black pepper and vanilla. The palate is complex, with sweet fruit flavours of boysenberry and raspberry balanced by notes of cedar and a chalky texture. Full bodied in the mid palate, the natural acidity and supple tannins give the wine lovely freshness and persistence."
5 Stars & 19.0-/20 Raymond Chan, October 2015 (2013 Vintage)
"Very dark, purple-hued, black ruby colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is very fresh and primary with tightly bound and penetrating, piquant aromas of ripe blackberry and black pepper in an amalgam with dark herbs, ink and minerals. This has elegance of proportion, the concentration revealing black floral notes. Medium-full bodied, the palate is tightly concentrated and elegantly presented with bright, vibrant, primary black-berried fruit and black floral flavours entwined with violets, black pepper and soft herbal elements. This has a stylishly concentrated core with very fine-grained flowery tannins and balanced lacy acidity providing linear tension and energy. The wine flows with drive, and carries to a long, concentrated finish of black fruits, florals, herbs and spices. The sweetness of fruit blossoms with time in the glass. This is an elegant, piquantly fresh and aromatic Syrah with tight and youthful concentration and very fine structure. Match with wild duck, pork, lamb and beef over the next 8-10+ years. 100% Syrah fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 20 months in 18% new French oak."
