Te Awanga Estate Syrah

Autumn 2018 was a little unsettled but came at the end of a warm, dry summer 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 aromatics.

Classic white pepper, thyme and violet aromas lead into a palate that is elegant and pure. Plum and blueberry flavours give way to savoury characters. You know we love Syrah, right?!
