Syrah, Tinpot Hut, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand 2013
Two different clones of Syrah are sourced from a single vineyard site in Hawkes Bay, in the sub-region of Dartmoor, made from some of the oldest Syrah vines in New Zealand.
This wine exhibits aromas of white and black pepper, violets, plum and a subtle chocolate and leather spiciness. A medium-bodied complex wine in the mode of northern Rhône, showing plum, pepper and cinnamon characteristics with a slight bacon note on the finish. A firm acid backbone with silky tannins harmonises with the fruit and culminates in a warm ripe finish.
