Deep coloured syrah with a purple hue. Strongly fruit-focused wine with bright plum, raspberry, violet, white and black pepper flavours. Vibrant acidity gives the wine an attractive edginess.
Very dark, near impenetrable purple-hued black-red colour, very youthful in appearance. The nose is soft and a little reserved with an amalgam of ripe, blackberry, plum and boysenberry fruits interwoven with black pepper, soft Asian spices and dark-red and violet florals. This grows in concentration with attractive harmony. Medium-full bodied, the palate is fine and tightly presented with juicy and vibrant, rich and lively black and blue berried fruits entwined with dark red plums, black pepper, spices and violet florals. The concentrated core follows a fine, grainy, tannin line with fresh, lacy acidity enlivening the mouthfeel. The fine textures carry the wine, unfolding spices and florals as it leads to a fine, dry-textured, black-fruited finish. This is an elegant, tightly concentrated and fine, grainy-textured Syrah with ripe black fruits, pepper and spices, and a lively mouthfeel. Match with Middle Eastern lamb dishes over the next 5-6+ years. 100% Te Awanga fruit indigenous yeast fermented with 20% whole bunches to 13.3% alc., the wine aged 6 months in 10% new French oak.
Ripe, fragrant and inviting, the immediately appealing bouquet shows Black Doris plum, blueberry, floral and mixed spice characters. The palate is powerfully expressed with silky texture and loads of succulent fruit flavours, backed by supple tannins. Youthful yet harmonious and very appealing already. At its best: now to 2020.
