“Syrah, more than any other red grape variety planted here, tells a story about where it was grown and who made it. I believe it will become the most important red grape variety in Hawke’s Bay. It’ll become our trademark.” Rod.
Only made in a stellar vintage, Trademark is long-lived but limited. Think Northern Rhone. Admirable ripeness and depth of flavour, vibrancy and complexity on the nose, violet, spice, black cherry and subtle white pepper notes. Supple chalky tannins provide a structure that promises time in a bottle will be well rewarded.
