This wine is only made in the very best years. 2013 was an exceptional quality vintage for Syrah in Hawkes Bay. A fantastic warm summer followed by an extremely dry autumn meant the fruit was able to be harvested at perfect ripeness.The 2013 Homage is beautifully floral with interwoven berry purity and oak sophistication. Increased vine age and the presence of whole bunch ferments have added an extra dimension of florality and integration. It is a wine that is powerful and fragrant, showing great concentration and weight with a beautiful elegance. A tight, tense structure will allow the wine to age gracefully for many years (10+).
THE WINE ADVOCATE Robert Parker #224 (Apr 2016) - Lisa Perrotti-Brown - 91 points - Drink Date: 2016 - 2022 "Deep garnet-purple coloured, the 2013 Homage Syrah gives youthfully muted blackberry, cassis and red currant notes with a cracked black pepper, sandalwood, dried herb and soil laced undercurrent. Light to medium-bodied, it is wonderfully elegant and light-footed in the mouth with soft, rounded tannins and great freshness."
