The cream of the crop, this is the signature wine from Ash Ridge. Planted almost a decade ago (2005) these Syrah vines are really starting to achieve exceptional concentration of flavour. A future Hawkes Bay icon this exceptional wine will not last long.

Fruit:

Single Estate grown 100% Bridge Pa Triangle

99% Syrah, 1% Viognier.

53% Chave, 47% MS

Winemaking:

This wine is made of 5 different batches – all having differing winemaking on them, some traditional open top punch downs, whereas some of the batches were kept on skins up to eight weeks pre-ferment.

Each batch is aged in barrel separately for 8 months, blended then put back to barrel for another 6 months to homogenise.

This wine is unfined and unfiltered.

Alcohol: 13%

pH: 3.59

Sensory Evaluation:

Colour: Very Dark, deep, ruby red. Distinctive purple hues to outer rim.        

Aroma: Ripe blackberry, unfolding to dark red florals and spice.

Palate: Vibrant, rich and plush dark fruit. Ripe and lively blackberry entwined with black minerals, florals, and spice. Finely textured with great extraction and finesse.

Food Matches:

Lamb, beef, venison, or savoury vegetarian dishes (Mushroom Risotto).

Cellaring:

Will reward careful cellaring for 7+ years.
