2017 Back Block Syrah, Brookfields, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
The `back block` at the Ohiti estate is literally a site, at the back, surrounded by hills on a shingle, free-draining terrace which faces north-east and is perfect for growing and ripening Syrah. A dark ruby colour with sweet berry fruits on the nose. The palate is round and approachable with notes of blackberries, cloves, pepper and earthy tannins.
Founded in 1937, Brookfields Vineyards is Hawke`s Bay`s Oldest Boutique Winery, situated alongside the glistening waters of the Tutaekuri River, between Napier and Hastings. The winery was purchased by the current owner and winemaker Peter Robertson, in 1977, who has since transformed Brookfields into a leading winery for New Zealand premium wines.
