The 2014 vintage in Nelson produced stunning Syrah. Our previous 4 vintages have all produced a Gold medal winning wine and this wine will be following suite. A little lower in Alcohol at 12.5% this wine has great fruit concentration and lovely white pepper aromas. bottled on the 24th March this wine will develop into a lovely example of a cool climate Syrah reminiscent of the Rhone Valley, French style.

As can be seen above, we use reflective cloth in the inter-rows to reflect light up into the canopy and to get the fruit 100% physiologically ripe. This allows the rachas to sinesse and there by prevent any further uptake of water during rain events, which results in no splitting or dilution of flavours.

The 2014 Syrah is a Rhone style wine, utilising a Rhone yeast and thereby producing characters similar to the famous french region.

"Leather on the nose, white pepper and spice combine with soft tannins and a silky elegance that makes this wine a joy to drink from bottling. It has lovely fruit and will continue to gain complexity and structure over the next 4 - 7 years. A great wine to cellar"

It is a fantastic accompaniment to Venison, steak and game.
