Unison Syrah 2010


Product Notes


Gentle handling and attention to detail are the hallmarks of our

winemaking. We handpick our grapes, then de-stem and lightly

crush them to just break their skins before they go into the

fermenting vats. The fermenting wines are carefully controlled to

maximise gentle tannin extraction and extended post ferment

maceration allows us to achieve a balance between fruit intensity

and tannin structure.

The 2010 Syrah was basket pressed and spent 24 months maturing

in small oak barrels, 30% new oak. Only 275 cases of this wine

were made to ensure the quality remained up to our highest


Vintage – 2010 An outstanding Syrah vintage

The growing season kicked off relatively early in September 2009.

The weather in spring was variable with particularly cold periods

in October. The unsettled weather continued through early summer

and it was not until February that Hawke’s Bay finally enjoyed

consistently warm dry conditions. These conditions were excellent

for flavour development in our grapes. Picking was late April due

to an exceptionally dry Indian Summer.

Tasting Note

Very dark dense inky colour with purple highlights.

The bouquet is full and packed with aromas of dark fruits

combined with black pepper, spice and liquorice that gives intrigue

and character to Unison Syrah.

A full bodied concentrated wine, the palate is full with flavours of

dark plums, and black berry fruits. Layers of spice and black

pepper mingle with dark chocolate and cedar.

Enjoy with Venison, Duck, Game, Lamb or Pork. Also be decadent and try with some 70%+ cocoa

chocolate. Cellar 8-10+ years.
