A deep ruby red colour, with aromas of black cherries and ripe black berries surrounded by elegant and integrated toasty oak. Deep, complex and rich flavours, with layers of black cherries and ripe currants, and firm tannins which give this wine structure, muscles and a long finish.
"A marvellously fragrant wine suggesting blackberry, licorice, anise and violets. The intense, long palate marries opulence and fineness to perfection. This just might be NZ’s most intense Syrah / Viognier. It’s a huge wine with a velvet texture and masses of ripe plum and dark berry fruit flavours that are more than a match for the wine’s solidly oaky overcoat.”
