  • Tasting Note: New Zealand Syrah, perfumed with blueberries and black pepper with a substantial presence of dark fruit and peat in the mouth.
  • Food Matching: Partners well with Venison, beef and beetroot
  • Vineyard: Sourced from 5 vineyards; Asylum, Lunatics, North 3, Mad Man's, Garden Cove. Vines are trained in two cane VSP. These unirrigated vineyards are naturally low yielding resulting in 12 - 18 bunches per vine yielding very concentrated fruit.
  • Producer note (short): Lifted aromas of speck and peat coupled with overt blue berries and black pepper notes. The palate is elegant with supple fruit, vibrant acidity with the presence of fine grained tannins emulating the structure of classical Northern Rhone.
  • Vinification: The majority of fruit was sorted, destemmed and then treated in our typical manner; no crushing, no yeast or additions and an extended time in vat. However, a few select ferments we added up to 15% whole clusters to the bottom of each vat before destemming on top. When pressed, the wines stayed in barrel for 18 months with a natural malolactic fermentation occuring in the spring before bottling under screw cap in February 2016.
  • Awards and Press News: Silver Medal 93/100 - Classic style, black olives and blackberries, savoury notes with fresh red fruit and peppery spice. Elegant old-world style. International Wine Challenge 2018 Steven Spurrier From 76 hillside blocks. Black pepper and blueberry, great vigour and firm finish (the 2008 in my cellar is superb) - a great wine. Drink 2017-2025. 95/100. Decanter Magazine, May 2017
