MAXIM SYRAH HAWKE'S BAY 2020
2020 HAWKE’S BAY - Two Terraces Vineyard
The Two Terraces Vineyard is located approximately 35km inland, in the Mangatahi Terraces subregion of Hawke's Bay. Over the past 15,000 years, the nearby Ngaruroro River has laid down some spectacular terraces, with shallow stony silt loams over red metals. As well as being shaped by the river, the soils also contain volcanic deposits from past eruptions on the volcanic plateau in the central North Island.
The slightly elevated inland location results in long warm-hot days balanced by cooler nights, ensuring ripe fruit while retaining freshness. The Syrah is planted in a part of the vineyard that is particularly sheltered and warm, with a stonier soil profile.
