The colour is a deep, vibrant crimson. Wild raspberry, blackberry and black pepper aromas predominate. Savoury, spicy notes are also prominent along with some meaty overtones. The Viognier has added a lifted aromatic quality and softened the tannins, making the wine more supple and appealing. Multi-layered complexity is the aim. Powerful but balanced, ripe tannins give the wine great structure. Oak aging plays a minor part and the wine lives on its fruit. Combined with the good acidity, these characteristics mean excellent aging potential.

2012 was a warm and early vintage in Hawkes Bay. Careful harvest timing enabled the range of vineyard sites to exhibit the fruit purity and exuberance typical of Gimblett Gravels Syrah. The grapes were gently de-stemmed to leave a large portion of uncrushed berries. This maximizes fruit expression and silky structure. A small quantity of Viognier (6 %) was included. Fermentation took place in a mixture of open-top and closed stainless steel vessels. The cap was pumped over and/or plunged twice daily for optimum color and tannin extraction. A range of post-fermentation maceration periods between batches allowed for increased complexity.
The wine was subsequently aged in a mixture of new and older French oak barriques. Malolactic fermentation took place in tank before going to barrel. Barrel aging of the wine utilized techniques more typical of Pinot Noir winemaking, hence no barrel racking plus some barrel stirring of the lees was carried out during barrel aging. This style of Syrah is relatively delicate and responds best to low impact winemaking. The wine was blended and bottled prior to the 2013 harvest.
