This true expression of Syrah, grown in our moderate Northland climate has always impressed. We aim to bottle the purity, concentration and complexity that is grown on our site. As such the wine is given minimal filtering. The near impenetrable force of the 2015 Syrah is dark, coiled and draped in black fruit. Youthful in appearance, this concentration will see this wine evolve in a fascinating way over the next 10 years.

The fresh nose of ripe blackberry, plum and liquorice marry with black pepper, earth and game, unveiling precise floral and mineral detail. The light touch of oak and coiled power will benefit from decanting before enjoying.

The Landing Vineyard on the Purerua Peninsula is bathed in long sunshine hours throughout the growing season, with a forgiving maritime breeze. These long hot summers make for hard work in the vineyard, but thankfully provide the ideal ripening conditions for Syrah grapes.
