Rod McDonald Trademark Syrah 2016 750ml
TRADEMARK STORY I hand-on-heart believe that Chardonnay and Syrah grown within our region will become the most important red and white varieties raised in Hawke's Bay. They’ll become our trademarks. With Trademark, we're putting our Chardonnay and Syrah out there, releasing it to the world, poking a stick in the ground and saying that this is the best we can create at that particular time, in this particular place. It's a life's work. Only made in a good vintage, with fairly small print runs. They're drinkers and keepers. Made from 100% Hawke's Bay gold.
TASTE Ripe fruit from three of our Trademark Syrah vineyards planted on limestone hillsides and an old riverbed. It shows admirable ripeness and depth of flavour, retaining vibrancy and great complexity on the nose and palate with typical violet, spice, black cherry and subtle white pepper notes. Supple chalky tannins provide a structure that promise time in bottle will be rewarded.
