De La Terre Hawks Bay Syrah 2021 750ML


De La Terre Hawks Bay Syrah 2021 750ML

A vibrant blue/black hue of real intensity in the glass, offering complex aromas of violets and ripe black fruits, layered with floral notes and dark pepper spice on the nose. Nuances of fine-grained French oak support these fruit aromas. An initial burst of dark and rich Syrah fruit is supported by very fine tannins and toasty French oak. The flavour is both long and persistent and highlights the impeccable balance between fruit, tannin and acidity.

De La Terre wines are completely artisanal. From the vineyard to the glass the personal touches are evident at this small family-owned boutique winery that specialises in hand-made wines from an unusual mix of grape varieties. The wines are crafted by Tony Prichard, owner and winemaker, in the small earth-brick winery he built, west of Hastings. The name De La Terre, literally meaning 'of the earth', is a reference to both the vineyard soils and the earth brick construction used in the winery and cellar door. Tony and his wife, Kaye, handcrafted this business from scratch, driven by their shared passion to create and produce quality products and to provide a personal touch in everything they do to offer something a little different from the norm.
