VARIETY and STYLE
Syrah 100% ('Hermitage) Waiheke grapes grown on Jurassic Ridge home vineyard. Classic cool climate Syrah, unfined and unfiltered, barrel and bottle aged.
**** Maturing well, the 2005 vintage (****) …grown at Church Bay ……is a full-coloured , sweet-fruited wine, with mouth-filling body and plum and spice flavours, peppery and lingering’
- Michael Cooper, Buyers Guide to NZ WINE 2010.
**** 'At least of Silver medal standard. If you can make a wine like this off such young vines (planted in 2002 - winemakers note) this stands well for future vintages'
