Falconhead Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2020 750ml

The grapes for this wine came entirely from our Tantallon vineyard in Hawke’s Bay. The grapes were harvested from our Tantallon vineyard and transported to our Riverview winery where they were crushed to open-topped stainless steel fermentation vessels and inoculated with a range of yeast strains. The ferments were pumped over several times per day until dry and then allowed from 2 to 5 days of extended maceration. The wine was then pressed off the skins and some were put to barrel where it was aged for 12 months. The wine was then transported by road tanker to our Katikati winery for final blending and finishing.

Beautifully perfumed with Doris plum, violet, toasted almond, and hints of pepper spice. The gorgeously rounded and supple palate displays lovely fruit purity and polished tannins.

Alc: 13.5%
