2008 Reserve Syrah
The 2008 Reserve Syrah is the second release of this wine by Bridge Pa Vineyard, New Zealand’s only wine producer 100% devoted to Syrah. 2008 in Hawke’s Bay was an excellent vintage, fruit for this wine was grown on own rooted vines in the Taupo Pumice Sands of the Ngatarawa Road vineyard. The Bridge Pa Reserve Syrah 2008 displays the classic Bridge Pa Vineyard aromas of perfumed violet and lifted black fruits. The northern Rhône style palate is supple and intense featuring cassis, black peppercorn, dark velvety chocolate and an earthy undertone. Barrel aging for 12 months in new and seasoned French oak barriques has contributed to a beautifully balanced and elegantly structured wine that will continue to develop in the bottle long after its release.
