Full, very dark, purple-hued black-ruby colour. This has a rich and full nose with blossoming layers of sweetly ripe blackberry and black plum aromas, harmoniously melded with black pepper, Asian spices and violet and black florals, along with integrated spicy, cedary and toasty oak. Medium-full bodied, the palate features densely packed and harmoniously entwined, opulent and decadent flavours of ripe blackberry fruits, plums and liquorice, unfolding waves of black pepper, chocolate and cedary oak. The mouthfeel is smooth and soft-textured, quite complete in expression, with seamless, underlying tannins and structure that builds in presence. The sweet fruit and oak flavours prevail and flow effortlessly to a sustained finish with spices, cedar and considerable depth and presence. This is a very rich, decadent and densely packed, complete Syrah with ripe black berr and plum fruits, and layers of spice and cedary flavours. Match with Middle Eastern fare, and lamb, beef and venison over the next 10-12 years. 100% Syrah from the ‘Omahu Gravels’ and ‘Twyford Gravels’ vineyards, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 20 months in 40% new French oak.
This is spectacularly good. Awesome fruit concentration and wonderful purity. Aromas of black/blueberry, cherry, clove, nutmeg and a whiff of white pepper on the nose. It is concentrated and powerful, yet refined and perfectly poised for gradual development. An astonishing rendition of the variety. At its best: 2018 to 2033.

Dark crimson. Ripe and savoury at the same time. Some sweetness, as though fashioned from candied leather. Round and ripe.
