Spicy, Syrah dominant blend

Hinemoa Estate overlooks the beautiful Omaha Beach, just 40 minutes north of Auckland. The vineyards sit facing north to maximise the grapes exposure to the sun, especially over the long, warm NZ summers. Syrah does well here, and when blended with Merlot and Malbec this delicious Moana blend was born. 2014 was a good year in the north and after 5 years ageing in the bottle we think it’ll be great to drink now. Think a deep ruby in the glass with notes of forest fruits, white pepper and French oak - let it breathe for a bit and then dive in. - Wine Central Tasting Panel

Meet the maker

Hinemoa Wines is a small brand from the sunny north at Omaha Beach, 74 kilometres north of Auckland. This beautiful seaside spot is better known as a weekend and holiday region than a wine one and it’s in the Rodney District. It’s only a hop, skip and a jump for Aucklanders to get away from the big smoke, but the climate is warmer than in our biggest city.

Higher temperatures year round provide more heat for late ripening grapes, such as Syrah, Malbec and even mid ripening Merlot, which can all flourish in this part of the world, in a good vintage. The 2015 and 2016 wines recommended this week are from lovely warm, dry years. The 2012 is showing beautiful savoury development and represents a stellar bargain buy at this price.

Did you know… Together, Auckland and Northland are the third smallest wine region in New Zealand with 392 hectares of vines (which also includes Waiheke Island). The two regions that are even smaller are the Waitaki Valley in North Otago with 58 hectares of vines and the Waikato and Bay of Plenty, which together have just 15 hectares.
