2019 Heretaunga Syrah

2020 Heretaunga Syrah

Hawke's Bay

Dark ripe Syrah from our Omahu and Mangatahi vineyards, hand-picked, traditionally fermented on skins, aged in fine French oak barriques.

Deep ruby red colour. Aromas of ripe blackberry, plum, red liquorice, black pepper and red flowers show beautifully. The palate is medium to full bodied with flavours of ripe black
fruits, raspberry, anise, pepper, thyme and a lovely thread of vanilla and cedar from oak and fruit. The finish is long with a lovely savoury twist.

Will drink beautifully now through 2028.

~ 96 Points ~ “Dense, ripe, complex syrah with cassis, blackcurrant, plum, liquorice, black pepper and spicy oak flavours. Surprisingly accessible for such a youthful and concentrated wine, although I have no doubt that the wine will develop well with bottle age.” – Bob Campbell
