"The wine is made with Syrah from our Gimblett Vineyard and Te Awanga Vineyard with 1% Viognier co-fermented into the blend. There were 5 separate hand-picks across the two vineyards from 4th April to 21st April. The wine spent 27 months in oak (71% new) with no racking of the barrels. This wine has great depth and complexity showing plum, black cherries, spice and pepper. It will age very well for many years."
