Description

Louis Syrah 2007 is the flagship wine of Bridge Pa Vineyard, New Zealand’s only wine producer 100% devoted to Syrah. Named for Louis, the owner’s oldest child, this wine is made from the very best hand harvested fruit from vines grown on Taupo Pumice Sands at the Ngatarawa Road vineyard. 2007 was a stellar vintage with ideal growing conditions early in the season followed by a long hot summer. The 2007 Louis shows a dense youthful colour, mocha chocloate box on the nose supported by ripe fruit, turkish delight and violet notes. On the palate the wine is mouth filling with masses of sweet fruit underlined by leather and clean earthy notes. The tannis are fine and still integrating, acid is low making the wine feel plush and full bodied. The complexity pushes through on the finish with a suuple, ripe and dense wine lingering.  Drink now or cellar for up to 10 years.

Awards & Reviews

IWSC2011 Gold Best of Class
Gold Medal, Best of Class International Wines and Spirits Competition 2011, UK (October 2011)
"Lovely rich garnet colour, concentrated and powerful wine full of new world ripeness and old world complexity. Classic aromoas of pepper, rich blue fruit spice and a hint of lifted balsamic. Savoury ripe tannins framed with herbal acidity give the wine structure, packed full of complex flavours which are endless. Great wine." Judging Panel, IWSC 2011
95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit Dec 2010
“Deep red/purple in colour, this is gloriously ripe and plush on the nose displaying blackberry, dark plum, floral and vanillin oak characters. The palate is expansive and dense with super-smooth texture and loads of polished tannins. The wine is powerful yet beautifully layered and structured with lovely integration. Simply stunning! At its best: now to 2020.”
93/100 Bob Campbell M.W, Nov 2010
"Big, rich and concentrated Syrah with some almost Barossa-like choc/mocha characters (some US oak). Lovely intense sweet fruit flavours linger in the palate. More energy and focus than the Australian equivalent."
