91 POINTS: Bob Campbell MW
“A multi-vintage blend of Syrah from a coastal Waiheke vineyard. Interesting and distinctive wine that’s more vinous than fruity with savoury, spice, mint, leather, cedar, dried herb, pepper and oak characters. Quite evolved but could become even more interesting with a few more years in bottle.” – Bob Campbell MW
100% Syrah, multi-vintage blend. Hand harvested, natural fermentation, matured in a mixture of tank and barrel. An early drinking style of Syrah, with a lightness of touch that belies the complexity and structure of the palate. Black cherry and wild herbs on the nose, with a dusty character that hints at Old World style. Juicy on the palate, a soft persistence gives interest.
