Tinpot Hut Hawkes Bay Syrah 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

*Bronze Medal - Decanter World Wine Awards 2013* Winemaker Fiona Turner has worked with Matt Thomson on many of the most successful wines made in Marlborough. The tinpot hut that gave its name to Fiona’s brand is an old mustering hut in the remote hills between the Wairau and Awatere Valleys. These huts were used as a base for musterers, who were responsible for rounding up the sheep that had been in the hills from spring to autumn and bringing them down to the low paddocks for the winter. Ruby red in colour with youthful violet highlights. On the nose there are aromas of white and black pepper, violets and plums together with subtle hints of spicy chocolate. On the palate, it has plummy, pepper and cinnamon flavours, with a slight smoky note. Good structure, with silky, ripe tannins and a warm, ripe finish. "Excellent purity and plumpness, while maintaining lightness, spice and delicacy. Not quite as enthralling as the 2008 (and a whole degree more alcoholic too) but still exemplary cool climate Syrah." 16.5 points, Richard Hemming - JancisRobinson.com, February 2013
