Crafted in an exclusive and small scale manner, this elegant Syrah has an attractive fragrant and lifted quality to it, displaying pronounced black pepper and floral notes reminiscent of northern Rhone wines. Concentrated and supple in the mouth, it has an abundance of red fruit, spice and dark chocolate flavours come to the fore, combining perfectly with subtle oak notes and savoury undertones. A beautiful example of this grape variety that ranks amongst New Zealand’s greatest examples, best enjoyed when paired with rich red meat and game dishes.£4.13 per 100.00ml
Established in 1979, New Zealand winery Te Whare Ra (pronounced Te Faré Rha) has built up a reputation for producing outstanding terroir driven wines that possess an old world style and elegance. Although predominantly renowned for white wine production, Te Whare Ra also have a particular fondness for the red grape Syrah, and today represent one of the only Marlborough producers pioneering with this variety. In the vineyard, grape yields are kept very low and biodynamic practices are rigorously employed meaning overall production is very limited.
