Syrah is a labour of love for Te Whare Ra. This wine is the ninth release of Syrah and is a blend of four different clones planted on the home vineyard SV5182. It exhibits the great fragrance and suppleness that is loved about cool climate Syrah and might just surprise a few doubters. This Syrah exhibits fragrant notes of mulberry, black pepper and violets with some complex savoury notes and hints of coffee and spice. The ripe, supple tannins combine with concentrated flavours of mulberries and omega plums and spice. The palate carries onto more savoury and complex flavours and finishes with a lingering persistence of fruit, fine tannin and well integrated oak.
