de la terre
Spicy, pretty, elegant
Moderate colour depth with a range of berry aromas – especially blackberry with hints of blackberry flower. A ‘pretty’ nose with the French oak in a nice balance alongside the fruit.
Some cigar-like complexities already starting to develop. A reasonably strong attack of fruit with gentle mid-palate tannins and a light seam of acidity. A long, clean finish.
An elegant Northern Rhône style of Syrah picked by hand from the highest altitude vineyard in Hawkes Bay. The aromas are distinctly blackberry, yet behind that they are somewhat gamey with notes of dark chocolate and cloves. Tannins are well integrated and balanced by soft acidity which lead towards flavours of white pepper, blackberries and tobacco. The finish is long!
