Te Mata Estate is one of the pioneers of Syrah in New Zealand and one of Hawke's Bay's longest continually running wineries. This Syrah is made with grapes grown on vineyards at Woodthorpe Terraces and Bridge Pa Triangle, all destemmed for fermentation and given extended maceration on skins before pressing into a combination of new and seasoned French oak for five months maturation.
Glowing a saturated magenta, Estate Syrah ?20 entices with fresh blueberry, black cherry and ripe, black plum. Hints of prune, coffee, Italian herbs, cinnamon and woodsmoke all underpin the exotic nature of this ultra-modern wine. Intense and focused, Estate Syrah ?20 balances weight, power and drive, with dark fruit perfume and inky depths. Pure satisfaction.
