This refined Syrah shows white pepper notes on the nose classic of this varietal and a heart of rich fruit from one of the best vintages in history. Smooth tannins balance a hearty lingering finish that together cries out for a sympathetic food match – think mushrooms and blue cheese, steak, pork-belly, pear tart ... Hand-plunged daily for five weeks then matured in French and American barrels for 18 months. 13% alcohol.
Gisborne grown Syrah is beginning to create waves – the grape is quite well suited to the terroir and the number of fine examples available is only set to grow. Without a doubt – this 2013 Family Syrah is one of them. Gisborne Syrah tends to the refined rather than the blockbuster Aussie Shiraz style. Grapes sourced from Patutahi, Gisborne, NZ
