Syrah 2017, De La Terre, Hawkes Bay
A vibrant blue/black hue of real intensity. Complex aromas of black olive, black cherry (with a hint of ‘cherry sours’) and dark pepper spice. Nuances of fine-grained French oak.
A strong backbone of ripe tannins holding together layers of dark and rich Syrah fruit and black pepper. The flavour is both long and persistent and highlights the impeccable balance between fruit, tannin and acidity.
Hawke’s Bay’s only earth brick winery. A small family-run business, owned and operated by Tony and Kaye Prichard, and Gracie, the Winery Dog. They produce small volumes of high quality wines with the emphasis on elegance, texture and balance. The name ‘de la terre’ literally meaning ‘of the earth’, is a reference to both the vineyard soils and the earth brick construction used for our the winery and cellar door.
