This wine is based on our Chalk Ridge block, just to the south of Havelock North. It is a steep, north facing amphitheatre that is strewn with fossilised limestone. A dash of Viognier from the same block (1.53%) was co-fermented with the Syrah to add fragrance and to help fix the colour. A small amount of Gimblett Gravels Syrah was also included to add more complexity. The wine spent around 12 months in new and seasoned French oak before assemblage and bottling on Dec 4th 2015.
