Te Motu Kuikui Syrah 2020 750ml

A limited release of ultra-premium Syrah, from a strong Waiheke Island vintage.


Named in dedication to Margaret Dunleavy, the green-fingered mother of eleven, Kuikui means ‘the matriarch’ in Maori. As her children planted vines in the Onetangi Valley, she placed and nurtured the rose bushes at the end of each row.

Kuikui represents the best expression of Syrah our estate will produce. 

Hand-harvested from low-yielding vines, with an obsessive level of fruit sorting.  This Syrah was fermented in barrel, before enjoying extended élevage and maturing for 24 months in premium French oak before resting in bottle.

This wine can be enjoyed in its youth, but has the pedigree to improve for years to come. Only 650 bottles produced. 



“Lovely creamy texture with dark berries, asphalt, tea leaves and graphite on the nose and palate. Medium-bodied. Builds nicely on the palate, with hints of chocolate and walnuts at the end. Drink or hold.” 95 points James Suckling

Minimum order: 3 bottles across Te Motu Vineyard's range.


Price based on case of any 15x 750ml bottles, all-inclusive of freight, taxes, duty and insurance from NZ Producer to your door in Australia. All prices based on live exchange rate.
