An exceptional harvest of quality fruit sees our 2015 vintage delivering all the character of 2014 and more. This one is already displaying the classic hallmarks of a quality New Zealand Syrah. Expect a touch of berry on the nose, full fruit flavours and a smooth peppery finish. This will drink well now but will pay dividends if cellared.
“Very polished aromas; new oak cinnamon and vanilla woven with redcurrant and red cherry. Plenty of richness, not much peppery characters but instead some bold ripe plummy fruit.”

“Estate-grown on Moturoa Island, in the Bay of Islands, the 2015 vintage is a rare Northland red, worth discovering. Still unfolding, it has deep, bright, moderately youthful colour, with a fragrant, ripe, spicy bouquet. Fresh and full-bodied, it is sweet-fruited, with strong, plummy, berryish, spicy flavours, a hint of liquorice, good tannin backbone and a lasting finish. Best drinking 2021+.”
