Description

Obsidian are one of Waiheke’s prestige producers with vines planted in Onetangi, the area that many consider as the Island's Grand Cru. 2018 was a balmy vintage that didn't get overly hot, ripening the grapes to perfection for a slightly more elegant and pronounced style of Syrah, rather than the blockbuster that often comes to mind when thinking of Waiheke reds.

Smells

The aromas are gentle, with soft plum, blackberry, and baking spices atop a hint of black pepper, finishing with an earthy, herbal complexing vein.

Tastes

A softer, more elegant Syrah that still somehow manages to envelop the taste buds in a creamy tide of dark fruits, mocha, fresh raspberries dipped in Belgian chocolate, and touches of toasty complexity… This is a seriously good Syrah that will evolve for the next 5-7 years… Enjoy! Perfect with all juicy red roasted meats.
