Syrah 2021 750ml
Te Mānia Syrah is a single vineyard wine made from grapes grown in Hawkes Bay. One of the finest Syrah growing areas in New Zealand
Tasting: Lovely dark berryfruit and peppery aromas with some spice and earthy notes. On the palate vibrant dark berryfruit with spicy / peppery notes supported by fine tannins and a long finish. Excellent drinking with savoury dishes.
Wine Making: The grapes were hand picked, destemmed, crushed and then transferred to traditional small open top fermenters. The fermenting juice and skins were then plunged by hand to break up the cap as the wine macerated and fermented. The must or fermenting wine was then pressed to separate the skins and transferred to a mix of 20% new and old French oak barrels. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in spring in French oak barrels where it was aged for 11 months before bottling.
Diet: This wine is suitable for a vegan diet.
Analysis: Alcohol 13%, Acidity 5 g/L , Residual Sugar Nil
It's delightfully fragrant on the nose with dark plum, sweet cherry, olive and almond notes, leading to a gently weighted palate offering bright fruit flavours with grainy tannins, finishing firm and sturdy. 91 Points, 4.5 Stars, Sam Kim (Wine Orbit) May 2023
