This delightful creature is a relaxed generous mid weight wine.The two components for this blend are grown on similar alluvial river derived soils but occupy territory some three hours drive apart.The d ominant component is Syrah from the Gimblett gravels area on the north westen fringe of Hawkes Bay, a high density planting of lovely vines looking slightly more relaxed in a year with some rains at harvest. The second component is closer to home, it's Pinot Noir from the Cirrus vineyard we farm ourselves, to this component we embrace a degree of whole bunch ferment to drive botanic threads and spice. As one this wine finds its harmony, a core of generous juicy fruit, supple tannic frame and finely threaded spice.
