Paritua Syrah 2008 75cl

Only 0 per customer!

Limited stock
Indulgent Hawkes Bay Syrah showing inviting aromas of black cherry, blueberry and fragrant plum blossom with underlying hints of black pepper and five spice. This is a beautifully balanced wine with Black Doris plum, blackberry and sweet raspberry characters on the palate, complemented by a fine grained tannin structure and exceptional length. Enjoy from 2010 with wild pork, game birds and venison or cellar for at least seven years from vintage to allow for the development of more complex savoury notes.

VITICULTURE
Two French Syrah clones (Chave and 174) are grown onsite at Paritua Vineyards on Maraekakaho Road, in the heart of the Triangle District. The vines are cropped light to ensure the grapes have the best possible flavour, enhanced by good sun exposure. Fruit thinning takes place to one bunch per cane to maximize ripening potential and the grapes are harvested by hand to select only the finest bunches.

WINEMAKING
Whole bunches were de-stemmed and partially crushed with the aim of achieving approximately 20% whole berries in tank. After several days of cold soaking the ferment was started by the addition of carefully selected yeast strains. Fermentation temperatures were kept under 30C to capture the delicate aromas in the wine, whilst regular pump-overs kept the cap submerged to extract the fine skin tannins. Malolactic conversion and barrel maturation took place in French oak barriques (50% of which were new) and the wine was racked once before bottling in June 2008.
