Te Awanga Est Syrah 750ml



Premium grapes were first grown in Te Awanga at the
beginning of last century. The warm coastal climate, gentle
sea breezes and the shallow clay soils combine to produce
award winning wines of great varietal flavour and finesse.
Autumn 2018 was a little unsettled but came at the end of an
advanced growing season. Fruit for this wine came from a
vineyard situated inland west of Hastings on an old riverbed.
Naturally higher than normal acidity was characteristic of
Syrah grapes this year producing a real definition in

A combination of machine and handpicked fruit was
destemmed but not crushed into open and closed fermenters.
The wine was plunged and pumped over up to three times a
day at the height of ferment. Post ferment it was rested for up
to two weeks on skins to advance and condense the tannin
structure making the wine more approachable and supple.
The wine was pressed and run to tank and new and used
French oak barriques, where it was matured for 12 months in
before it was blended and was bottled unfined in 2019

Classic white pepper, thyme and violet aromas lead into a
palate that is elegant and pure. Plum and blueberry flavours
give way to an attractive savoury character. The tannins are
fine and supple in this attractive wine.
