Te Whare Ra Syrah
Syrah is a labour of love for us here at Te Whare Ra. There are very few producers in the area who make this variety – so it is a bit left field for Marlborough – but our site is warmer than many, which means we have the length of growing season required and our soil type is well suited.
This Syrah exhibits fragrant notes of mulberry, black pepper and violets with some complex savoury notes and hints of coffee and spice. The ripe, supple tannins combine with concentrated flavours of mulberries and omega plums and spice. The palate carries onto more savoury and complex flavours and finishes with a lingering persistence of fruit, fine tannin and well integrated oak.
