    Winemaker's Notes:

    Matariki is a family-owned Hawkes Bay winery born from a passionate belief of John and Rosemary O'Connor that great wines are made in the vineyard. In 1981 they instinctively recognized the potential of Gimblett Road in Hawkes Bay as a unique and exceptional wine-producing area. The area has been referred to by Daniel Roberts, Director of Research for Kendall-Jackson as "capable of producing red wines equal to the world's best."

    Deep and intense ruby / garnet in color. The nose is a complex mix of plum, blackberry, clove and cinnamon. Fruit driven, but subtle integrated smoke and tar nuances from aging in French oak barriques. On the palate this wine is complex game / peppery flavours. Big structure displaying refined and integrated tannins and cedar oak, which lingers on the finish.

    "Shows the characteristic herbal and peppery notes of Rhône-style Syrah, accenting crisp blackberry fruit. Complex on the palate, wrapping the herbs and peppers tightly around rich fruit to the point that they're really inseparable."- Wine Enthusiast
