"Fresh and full-bodied, the 2018 vintage Reserve Syrah is an age-worthy red." Michael Cooper


"Three parcels from carefully chosen rows were vinified separately. After a three day cold soak to extract important colour and flavour components, the musts were fermented with selected yeasts in closed-top stainless steel vats, with diligent cap management, before the resulting wine parcels were pressed off the skins. They were then aged for eleven months in quality oak, 56% American and 44% French, of which 26% was new wood. The three parcels were then brought together on 26 March 2019. The final wine is un-fined, but filtered just before bottling under Stelvin screwcap closure." (Winery note)

This delicious Syrah conveys boysenberry fruit and peppery spice, with a hint of vanilla and toasty oak. Full bodied and imbued with supple integrated tannins, this complex wine is eminently enjoyable on its own or to accompany a classic Kiwi rack of lamb.
