The latest vintage of what has become an instant Waiheke classic. The 2014 is graceful wine that is already drinking well in its youth.
Raymon Chan writes "Medium-full bodied, the palate has a tightly bound and elegant core of dark raspberry and blackberry fruit harmoniously entwined with dark-red and violet florals. The fruit is supported by moderately extracted, fine-grained, flowery tannins with integrated acidity lending liveliness and drive. The mouthfeel has good energy and linearity, and the wine flows smoothly to an elegant, lingering finish of dark-red fruits, florals, spices and funky herb detail. This is an elegant, aromatic, fine-grained and smooth Syrah/Viognier blend with dark raspberry, floral and spicy flavours."
