'Syrah Royalty' from this outstanding boutique producer. Highly recommended!
Commonly regarded as New Zealand syrah royalty, La Collina is the Bilancia label's top syrah. It is grown on a sloping terraced vineyard (la collina means the hill) on the northern flank of Roy's Hill, near the Gimblett Gravels. Blackberry, spice and charry oak notes provide charming flavours, and the assertive tannic grip is a real feature.
