The cream of the crop, this is the signature wine from Ash Ridge. Planted over a decade ago, 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.

50% Chave, 50% MS

Winemaking:

This wine is made of 7 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, one batch was barrique fermented and others with varying degrees of whole bunch.

Each batch is aged in barrel separately for 9 months, blended then put back to barrel for another 6 months to homogenise.

This wine is unfined and unfiltered.

pH: 3.59

Sensory Evaluation:

Food Matches:

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

Cellaring:

Will reward careful cellaring for 7+ years.
