Hopesgrove Syrah 2015
- New Zealand, 750ml
An elegant, fine-grained Syrah with complex spicy fruit and toasted oak flavours. The nose leaps out of the glass with marvellous lifted floral, wild herb & bramble notes. Very fine tannins support the integrated core and provide soft textures and a smooth, flowing mouthfeel.

Every once in a while, a winemaker will come along that demands the extraordinary. Pieter Koopman, owner of Hopesgrove vineyard and expert winemaker believes in one thing above all else: less is more. Made in the sunny, rolling hills of the Hawke’s Bay, their exceptional wines are crafted exclusively from hand-harvested fruit and a passion for quality. What started as an olive grove has transformed into an award-winning winery, with meticulously chosen varietals, rootstocks, and clones to match the specific micro-climate of the region, resulting in the distinct perfection that you taste in every bottle. Pieter adheres to traditional winemaking styles that celebrate the unique terroir where it is made and continuously pursues the fundamental structure, texture, and expression of the fruit without interrupting the natural flavors. A passion for quality, a thirst for great wines, Hopesgrove wine demands the best, which means you get to drink the best.
