Sam Harrop Syrah "Cedalion" '15

Sam Harrop - a winemaker, wine writer, a Master of Wine.  He is also a great representation of a smaller producer to come of out New Zealand where initially, to gain traction, most gravitated towards larger outposts for winemaking.  More recently, we're seeing a resurgence for those that are heavily involved in this movement towards being estate driven, creating something of interest and intellect - not just through Sam's words as he touches on this idea, but through his wines.  

Waiheke Island is just off the coast near Auckland.  As Sam Harrop says: "Cedalion wines embody the values of their maker: Subtlety, singularity, and – in the case of the flagship wines – longevity. Wines are made from single vineyards chosen for their uniqueness and ability to produce a premium example of the varietal. They are a true reflection of the site in any given year."  This Syrah shows restraint and depth, but alongside bright acidity and well integrated tannins creating a drinkable wine.  The fruit is bold yet there is a delicacy found in its floral tones and hints of white pepper.
