Colour: A beautiful deep purple/red, with a dense, dark core and bright, flashing purple rim.
Bouquet: The essence of Hawkes Bay Syrah: masses of black fruits, a touch of pepper, some meatiness and lovely, savoury oak.

Description

Our fourth Reserve Syrah is made from fruit from our Chalk Ridge block, just to the south of Havelock North. It is a steep, north facing amphitheatre that is strewn with fossilised limestone. A tiny amount of Viognier (1.48%) from the same block was whole cluster, co-fermented with the Syrah to add fragrance and complexity and to help fix the colour. Vintage 2018 very challenging, but, the vineyard crew were utterly committed to this block, and, as a result, we harvested some of the best fruit we have ever seen from this vineyard. The block was hand harvested on 23rd March and 3rd April and the wine spent around 12 months in French oak (55% new) before assemblage. Bottling was on 11th June 2019.
