Hugely Concentrated Wine from the
Waiheke 'Vintage of a Lifetime'
– The 100 year weather event!
A big, soft, full-bodied and spicy Syrah from the 'hundred year event' on the island, with the classic character and personality of a Syrah from the Northern Rhone (ie Cote Rotie in style). However, this one is SIGNIFICANTLY BOLDER and more concentrated than our Gold Medal Syrah 2008 and is now available on general release (online shop and Cellar Door sales) as well as being available for Cellar Club discounts. After 9 years of cellar-ageing it is drinking very well now in that 'intermediate stage', but clearly has much longer cellaring potential. Will be at its peak for at least another 10 years.
Food match: Any fine cuisine and that special occasion - venison casserole by the fire?
