Vintages Wine Panel: This state-of-the-art Hawkes Bay winery just opened its doors in November 2008. Premium quality is its focus and the vineyards, planted in 2003, are already producing superb wines like this succulent Syrah. With aromas of black pepper, juicy black fruits and a hint of anise, there’s a clear Northern Rhône influence here. Look for more rich fruit and spice on the palate supported by refined tannins and tangy acidity. My note: Juicy, plumy and dark chocolately. Rich and full-bodied with layers of flavor. Perfect for backyard barbecues.

Syrah food pairings: New Zealand Spring Lamb.
