Syrah (Shiraz), Collection Alpha Domus, Hawkes Bay, 2016
The Collection Syrah is a true representation of our vineyard nestled in the heart of the Bridge Pa Triangle District, producing floral, brighter and soft styles of wine.
Syrah is the most vigorous variety and requires special attention to detail in the vineyard to control growth of the canopy and the yield of fruit. Syrah is also a variety that strongly reflects the place it is grown producing delicate floral reds in cooler regions to inky dark impenetrable in warmer climates. The fruit is 100% destemmed and fermented with selected yeast, to retain the primary fruit freshness the wine was matured in our 5000 litre French oak Cuves during maturation.
Bright aromatic and completely delicious, with vibrant floral aromas of violet, cherries and spice. The fresh palate of ripe berries and soft tannins make this a moreish wine, it’s easy to like and even easier to put with your favourite vegetable and pasta dishes, lamb or game meats.
