Truly exceptional Syrah from New Zealand’s only cult wine. More like Côte-Rôtie & Hermitage and painstakingly produced with each individual berry picked by hand!

96 Points - Bob Campbell "Quite an ethereal syrah with typical Kusuda purity and refinement. Gentle raspberry, cherry, violet, rose petal and spicy French oak flavours. A delicate, graceful wine with impressive concealed power demonstrated in a lingering finish."

Taste & Aroma

Producer

Region

At the Southern tip of the North Island and a sub-region of Wairarapa is Martinborough. Known for it’s boutique style of winery, Martinborough’s production is dominated by Pinot Noir characterised by its balance between elegance and intensity, evident in the wines of Devotus and Leung Estate. As well as Pinot Noir, plantings of several other varieties that reach their full potential in Martinborough’s climate are also found including Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Viognier and Syrah, producers like Dry River are a great example of the quality these varieties can reach. Martinborough has a semi-maritime climate with coastal breezes coming from the east and shelter within the rain shadow of the Tararua Ranges resulting in a cool, dry climate.

Zalto Denk-Art Universal Glass

For richer, oaked Sauvignon Blancs such as The Fuder, white Graves or Semillon/Sauvignon blends. For young and non-vintage Champagne we recommend Zalto Universal. However, the Zalto Universal is a very good all-rounder, designed for all types of wines but may not maximize the potential of certain wine as much as the Bordeaux or Burgundy glass.
