The Syrah content of this wine is a mix of the classic Mass Selection clone and Chave, one of the newer clones to be grown in Hawke’s Bay. This wine is 99% Syrah and 1% Viognier. The hand-picked bunches were fully de-stemmed without crushing, and fermented in traditional open-top wooden cuves. After pressing, the wine was put to 100% new burgundian oak barriques and allowed to mature for 16 months before bottling. The TA is 6.1 grammes per litre, pH is 3.59, residual sugar is 0 grammes per litre, and dry extract is 32.
