Tasting Notes

Our 2017 The Landing Syrah is bold and expressive, with dense dark berry and black cherry aromas supported by notes of game, liquorice and cigar leaf. Juicy mouth-watering acidity is in balance with black cherry, tobacco, granite and ash, and the toasted berry finish has a delicious peppery texture.

  • Vineyard & Winemaking

    The fruit was destemmed to open top fermenters and hand plunged until fermentation was complete. After a short post-ferment maceration the wine was pressed to tank, settled, then racked to barriques for maturation on fine lees. After 18 months in oak the wine was blended and bottled.

    Syrah clone MS was planted in 2007 on a north facing slope in the clay soils of the Purerua Peninsula. These mature vines were hand-picked in early April following a favourable growing season.

  • Vintage Notes

    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.

    Drinking well today and evolving over the next decade if cellared, our 2017 Syrah is bold and expressive, with dense dark berry and black cherry aromas supported by notes of game, liquorice and cigar leaf. Juicy mouth-watering acidity is in balance with black cherry, tobacco, granite and ash, and the toasted berry finish has a delicious peppery texture.

    The Landing Vineyard on the Purerua Peninsula is bathed in long sunshine hours throughout the growing season, with a forgiving maritime breeze, perfect for growing the Syrah grape – and the hundreds of years of agriculture that came before us.
