Winemaker's Notes
"The 2013 Syrah has a deep and youthful vibrant crimson colour. Wild raspberry, blackberry, cracked pepper and clove aromas predominate. Powerful and balanced ripe tannins give the wine great structure. Oak plays a supporting role with the wine living on a pure fruit expression. This purity combined with refreshing natural acidity means there is excellent potential for aging. Development of mineral, gamey characters will result from bottle age. Great with red meat dishes but especially good with game, particularly with duck and venison. Drink 2015 - 2025."

Technical Notes
"2013 was an exceptional year for red wine in Hawkes Bay. The wine was aged for 14 months in a mixture of new and older French oak 225 litre barriques. This barrel aging regime utilizes the philosophy more typically used in the making of Pinot Noir and includes barrel stirring of the lees and very minimal racking. 12.7% alc."

2012 Mullineux Syrah
90 WA; 90 WS A lot going on and it all comes together deliciously. Some red and some purple fruits, hints of pepper, cinnamon, and cloves, a touch of smoky bacon, and all balanced with good acidity to make an excellent pairing with your favorite dish, well maybe not pineapple souffle, we were thinking more typical dinner mains.
