Deep, dense colour with Damson plum and purple hues. Lifted floral edge with dark plum and ripe raspberry. Sweet nutmeg and cinnamon spice with some star anise. Evenly textured palate with ripe berry fruit and hints of anise and other spices. Distinctive white pepper finish. Warm earthy, slightly meaty notes with fine grained tannins on a long lingering finish. An excellent expression of Hawke’s Bay Syrah.
