Terrace Edge Syrah 2015
4 in stock
From a small family producer in Waipara / North Canterbury, an emerging wine region in the South Island, an hour north of Christchurch. Terrace Edge were voted best organic winery in New Zealand in 2018. They are a little family owned and operated estate, with whom we volunteered for a few days in 2018..
Unusually for New Zealand, these grapes are planted on a 45 degree slope. North facing, it gives great sunlight exposure and riper fruit than you’d expect in Canterbury. This is a special wine, from an unusually warm summer, which yielded a full 14.5% natural alcohol. And it’s a full bodied flavour bomb – violets, cassis, vanilla, black olive, black pepper, vegetal notes, bacon fat and leather. Great with red meat or sturdy cheeses.
