Made by acclaimed viticulturist Oliver Powrie under his new eponymous label comes an absolutely sensational expression of Syrah from the acclaimed Lyons Vineyard. Since retiring from his role at Villa Maria, Ollie has become a true Garagiste making small batches of sensational, classically made, minimal intervention in his small, turreted, ivy-covered garage in Napier. This Syrah is a true FUTURE CLASSIC and its sibling, the Cabernet was an absolute hit at our 'Future of Wine' tasting in early June. It's a stunner, with lots of powerful fruit, aromatic spices and lovely florals.
Aromas of violets, imperial spices, black pepper and dark berry fruits. The palate is lively with wonderful layers of fruit and savoury notes entwined with the playful, fine grained tannins.
