This individual expression of Hawkes Bay Syrah was inspired by the exponents of captivating whole bunch macerated wines of the northern Rhone. Lavender, clove and aniseed meld with intense black cherry fruit. The suggestion of underlying tar and earth notes hint at bottle development traits yet to emerge. The palate is lithe, sinuous and sappy – tightly structured via very fine textural tannins, low acidity, and vivid fruit characters.

WINEMAKING NOTES

Hand-picked, this wine was entirely whole Bunch fermented in a Concrete Egg tank which was occasionally pumped over or plunged. After a total maceration time of 8 weeks, the wine was basket pressed, blended and returned to concrete and French oak barriques for maturation (total new oak of 20%). A natural malolactic fermentation completed the following spring. After 12 months maturation, the components were blended and bottled without fining or filtration.
