Omaha Bay Vineyard Syrah 2007 $NZ30
Hegman and Bev Foster opened for tasting in May 2007. They have three estate grown wines - Flora, Pinot Gris and Italian variety Montepulciano.
Also wines made from Marlborough, Hawkes Bay and west Auckland grapes. As you drive through the vineyard to arrive at the tasting room and wine cave on the brow of the hill, there are breath-taking views of Omaha Bay and Little Barrier Island from the elevated Cellar Door.
A recent purchase was the Omaha Bay Vineyard Syrah 2007
Deep garnet red colour, smoky and gamey aromas plus plum, blackcurrant and cherry.
Medium tannins. A great match for BBQ steak or venison.
