Bilancia 'La Collina' Syrah

"A beautifully perfumed nose of white and black pepper, wet stone, grilled meat, toasted rosemary and grilled plum. Medium-bodied with silky, fruit-soaked tannins. The palate takes off, displaying an incredible amount of spicy complexity. Pepper, paprika, clove, coriander. It keeps going. Tight structure keeps everything wonderfully in line. Layered, dynamic and delicious. Superb" James Suckling

Bilancia is a small Hawkes' Bay producer of exceptional Pinot Gris, Viognier and Syrah. It is the label of winemakers Lorraine Leheny and Warren Gibson and was established in 1997 when Lorraine and Warren returned to New Zealand from winemaking overseas. The first wines were released in mid 1998. The word Bilancia (be-larn-cha) means, in Italian, balance, equilibrium and harmony. These terms have obvious connections with wine and winemaking, but also, Bilancia is the Italian word for the Zodiac sign Libra which both Lorraine and Warren were born under. Warren worked in Southern Italy for a number of harvests and the name came to him whilst reading his Horoscope in the Italian newspaper! The philosophy of balance, equilibrium and harmony is something that is carried through all aspects of the winemaking and, hopefully, people will see this when they drink the wines. The viticultural central point for Bilancia is the 6 hectares of land covering the front and back of Roys Hill where, planted only on the North - Northwest facing slope is the vineyard known as la collina (col-ee-na), which is Italian for "the hill". The upper most slopes and terraces are planted to Syrah whilst the lower gently rising land and gravels flat is planted to Viognier (and a small amount of Gewurztraminer). Some of the Viognier was top grafted to Chardonnay in 2007. All fruit has been sourced from Hawke's Bay vineyards: Syrah and Viognier are from la collina and Syrah from Mere Road (Gravels). Pinot Gris is from Black Bridge Estate at Haumoana. Michael Cooper described Bilancia as one of Hawke’s Bay’s rarest labels and wines from Bilancia are true to their name; balance, equilibrium and harmony.
