Te Mata Estate Syrah 2017

$24.00 $21.60

Brilliant red with a vibrant purple hue, Estate Vineyards Syrah ’17 overflows with aromatic notes of raspberry, black cherry, cardamom and plum, balancing elegant fresh fruit and fine, even tannins. On the palate there’s ripe boysenberry, vanilla and aniseed with just a touch of smoky paprika and French vanilla from the oak. Ripe red fruit gives length and texture across this soft and moreish wine. It is a wonderful accompaniment to all red meats, savoury and lightly spiced dishes of Mediterranean cuisine, as well as soft cheeses. Estate Vineyards Syrah ’17 will continue to evolve in bottle for two to four years from harvest.

Categories: ,


Estate Vineyards Syrah ’17 was harvested between 20 and 28 March 2017 from Te Mata Estate’s own vineyards in Hawke’s Bay’s Bridge Pa and Woodthorpe Terraces Triangle sub-regions.

The individual parcels of syrah from each plot were destemmed for fermentation and remained on skins for extended maceration before pressing. It was then run off to a mixture of new and seasoned French oak barrels for eight months’ maturation, during which time it was regularly topped and racked. The wine received a traditional egg white fining before bottling.
