Tasting Notes

A traditional burgundy in colour with a soft crimson hue. A very savoury Aroha from 2021 with chanterelle mushroom and white truffle aromas dominating the bouquet. The palate is lively and pure, focusing towards a red fruit core, whilst the tannins are prevalent but balanced. The concentration of flavour is high as a result of the low yield. Plenty of personality in a wine that will continue to soften with age.

Tasting Notes

Very dark purple core. Abundant sweet, black fruits lead the bouquet, notably boysenberry and blueberry aromas. The tannin structure of the wine is exemplary and seamless from start to finish. The wine shows considerable drinkability in its youth, and the intensity is the highest in several years.

Recommended Cellaring
10 – 15 years from vintage

Vintage Details

Vintage Detail
A very warm spring brought forward the growing season. Summer was mild but with minimal rain days, producing low yields. The result was near-perfect ripening conditions for Syrah.

Tasting Notes

Pale straw colour. A nose that talks to our house style: oyster shell, roasted cashews and orange zest. The palate is as powerful as it is everlasting. Brioche, white peach flesh and kaffir lime flavours are all present. However, the sophistication and detail give the wine the X factor. No hair out of place with oak, fruit and acid perfectly balanced. The creamy yet lasting acidity ensures that the flavour within the wine continues long after it leaves the month—an increasingly iconic Chardonnay in the NZ landscape.
