Te Awa Syrah Hawkes Bay 2007

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Impressive wine with more fruit sweetness and intensity than the Left Field label. Very seductive Syrah that delivers dark berry plum and black pepper with energy and focus. Though delicious now I will be intrigued to see how it ages. The wine has a heavy deposit of tartrates - decant before drinking. Bob Campbell MW.

Our philosophy is to achieve balanced wines, reflecting the grapes from which they are made and having the individuality of our vineyard site. Embracing the time proven traditions of the worlds great winemakers, we harvest and vinify the different parcels of our vineyard separately, which gives us small variations in flavour and texture and thus more options when it comes to blending. We aim for a synergistic effect, where the wine will be better than the sum of the individual parts. Even in our single variety wines we blend different components from different parts of the vineyard to achieve the most complete and balanced wine. Once blended, the components marry and age together, evolving towards harmony as one wine - the best possible expression of our vineyards unique character. We see ourselves as working with nature so that our wines are the unification of all the elements; our soil, cultivars, climate, and people. Read less

A dynamic red, focused and elegant, spreading a blanket of black pepper over a core of blackberry, currant and licorice flavors that keep kicking through the long, vivid finish. Best from 2011 through 2017. 600 cases made Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from Hawkes Bay in New Zealand. 2007 Te Awa Syrah 750ml
