Mission Estate Hawkes Bay Syrah CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Hawkes Bay New Zealand

Fruit is sourced from the Bridge Pa triangle and warm inland sites, fortuitously sheltered from the prevailing sea breezes, perfect for the Syrah to ripen superbly, infusing fine aromatics and building ripe, supple tannins. A soft, fruit driven palate of superb persistence, fashioned to a medium bodied style of freshness and seamlessness, expressing fully the magnificence of Hawkes Bay Syrah, a profound depth of flavour and generous length.

Vines are planted to auspicious stony gravels with light silt phases. Canopies are shoot thinned throughout the season, all plantings are vertical shoot positioned and leaves are regularly plucked around the bunches of fruit to encourage full ripeness of flavour. The harvest is crushed to fermenter and inoculated with yeast for two days of maceration, pumped over daily for a week at temperatures peaking to 30 °C. Upon completion, a further post ferment maceration of up to twenty days extracts deep flavour and a judicious measure of ripe tannins. A component is filled to seasoned oak to soften the palate and introduce complexity.
