2013 THE NOVELIST Waiheke Island Syrah - 12 x 750ml


2013 Waiheke Island Syrah

12 bottle case includes 10% case discount

We waited four years to release this wine!  The excellent vintage in 2013 with dry conditions in late summer allowed extended hang time for the fruit resulting in soft ripe tannins and fully developed phenolics.  The palate reveals both red and black berry fruits and the weight is full, softened by the extended ageing.  An exceptionally good food wine able to be matched across a wide spectrum of the menu and a very good example of the wide appeal of our Syrah.  Named "The Novelist" in recognition of our winemaker, Chris Canning, whose writing has won international recognition and who believes that wine, as with writers, benefits from ageing!
