Alpha Domus (Hawkes Bay) 2017 Syrah
Syrah is the most vigorous variety and requires special attention to detail in the vineyard to control growth of the canopy and the yield of fruit. Syrah is also a variety that strongly reflects the place it is grown producing delicate floral reds in cooler regions to inky dark impenetrable in warmer climates. The fruit is 100% destemmed and fermented with selected yeast, to retain the primary fruit freshness the wine was matured in our 5000 litre French oak Cuves during maturation.
Bright, aromatic with vibrant floral aromas of violet, cherries and spice. The fresh palate of ripe red berries coupled with black cherry and olive, soft tannins that have a seam of toasted spice make this a moreish wine. An attractive package that delivers full flavour with silken texture. Easy to like and even easier to put with your favourite vegetable and pasta dishes, lamb, or game meats
