A brilliant deep red with a vibrant purple edge, this wine immediately opens with ripe raspberry and red cherry appeal. The red fruit aromas – defined against subtle spices of white pepper, vanilla and cinnamon, and complexing notes of Turkish Delight and dark chocolate – adorn this wine with its signature floral quality, as well as vibrance and balance that run all the way through to its long finish.

Wine Advocate

The 2021 Syrah is a lovely wine. Delicious, in fact. The tannins are chalky and fine, bouncy and a little chewy (a very good thing). This is a gorgeous, slinky Syrah with a supple mouthfeel. Nice! This is spicy and very fine, and it features fruit from Gimblett Gravels, Dartmoor and Bridge Pa. The Bullnose fruit (the premium Syrah at Te Mata), if it falls out, will flow to Estate Syrah.
