Tasting Notes

The 2007 Syrah Block 14 is "killer" for want of a better expression. Though quite closed on the nose, it is very pure with blackberry, black pepper, minerals and a touch of smoke. The palate is just bloody gorgeous: firm but juicy tannins, superb acidity, harmonious and utterly pure, notes of blueberry and cassis with mouth-coating tannins on the finish. Quality winemaking here with a sense of "controlled" hedonism. Wonderful. Drink over the next 12 years.

Score: 94Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (184), September 2009

Sweet start and without quite as much Rhône character as the other Hawke's Bay Syrahs in this line up but very charming and mellifluous. Super easy and flattering. Drink 2009-2012
