About the wine

Perfection in a glass
  • Sourced from a single organically managed vineyard in the heart of the famed Gimblett Gravels of N.Z.’s Hawke's Bay.  The intensely flavoured fruit beautifully reflects the site and the cracking vintage.
  • Pungent red-fleshed plum fruits mingling with the trademark characters of black pepper and aniseed announces this wine assertively as a Hawke’s Bay Syrah! Gorgeous silky tannins, a medium palate weight and a driving core of red fruits wraps up with an incredibly long flavour-filled finish. Yummm.
  • Hawke's Bay Syrah is highly sought after and the fruit from good sites is in short supply. Thanks to Naked Wine and the Angels, Rod has a great track record with the vineyard owners and they trust him and Naked to look after the growers interests. Only made in tiny amounts. Get it while you can!

Best before
This was bottled with fresh vibrancy in mind. And that is what offers immediately. However, this will age well for 5-7 years and you should see more spice emerge with time in bottle. The tannins don't really acquire attenuating with time in bottle - so all bottle age will do is slowly change the characters rather than soften the wine.

Serving advice
It is really ready to go with a twist of the screw-cap. I always suggest a large glass so that you can spend time with the wine as aerates in the glass. Then you can enjoy the changes as is unfolds.

Food match
Gamey meats are a great way to go with Syrah - like Venison, guinea fowl, pheasant etc. But in general any strong red meat goes really well.
