Deep crimson. Incredibly peppery and scented dark-red fruit. Dry, charry but fresh. Fine-boned and compact in texture, layers of paper. Really peppery on the long finish. Real finesse.

Outer quote mark A superb wine. Quite possibly the greatest expression of Syrah that New Zealand has produced to date. The level of complexity and concentration, the layering of flavors and textures, the length of tannins – there is so much to admire in this wine. Fruits are in the raspberry, red plum and blackberry spectrum, doused in pepper and every imaginable woody spice. Hints of chocolate, too. A thrilling and vibrant Syrah. Inner quote mark
