Te Mania Syrah 2017

Regular price $25.99 NZD

Vegan Organic

Te Mānia Syrah is a cool climate style wine.  It is grown at sheltered inland vineyard sites to bring out the best from this classic variety. 

Tasting: Lovely dark berryfruit and peppery aromas with some spice and earthy notes. On the palate vibrant dark berryfruit with spicy / peppery notes supported by fine tannins and a long finish.  Excellent drinking with game and other red meat dishes.  

Wine Making: The grapes were hand picked, destemmed, crushed and then transferred to traditional small open top fermenters. The fermenting juice and skins were then plunged by hand to break up the cap as the wine macerated and fermented.  The must or fermenting wine was then pressed to separate the skins and transferred to a mix of new and old French oak barrels. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in spring in French oak barrels where it was aged for 12 months before bottling.

Diet: This wine is suitable for a vegan diet.

Certified Organic: Asure Quality.

Analysis: Alcohol 13%

Sweetly fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows Black Doris plum, mixed berry compote, vanilla, roasted nut and subtle savoury notes. The palate delivers lovely weight and intensity together with silky mouthfeel and supple tannins. Well rounded and attractively expressed. 90 points, 4.5 stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Sept 2019
