Poderi Crisci Syrah
- New Zealand, 750ml
Another great example of Poderi Crisci's style of Syrah. A very fragrant nose of a whole mixture of berries and dark plums kinking into other aromas like chocolate and cigar wrapper. The palate is concentrated and very dense, red and black fruit, mainly berries, with remarkable freshness and lovely savoury notes on a long finish.

The Poderi Crisci Syrah is an atypical style for Waiheke Island. Leaning more towards the traditional French Côte Rôtie style than the New World. The wine displays a great deal of red fruit and has a beautiful deep fragrance. Syrah itself is sometimes described as a double concentrated Pinot Noir and the Poderi Crisci Syrah captures this beautifully.
Immersed in the art of food and wine for four generations, the Poderi Crisci winery is an invitation to appreciate the finer things in life, a destination with layers of experience. A family-owned vineyard with flair for all things Italian and a passion for traditional winemaking, this slice of Tuscany in the infamous Waiheke Island wine region will transport you to a simpler time just by tasting their wine!
Napoli-raised Antonio Crisci arrived in New Zealand in the early 90’s, quickly making a name for himself in the Auckland hospitality scene while setting his sights on a winery where tradition would meet innovation and give people a taste for distinctly Italian wine blends. Planting the very first merlot vines in early 2000, the family have stayed true to old world styled wine and grape varieties, while providing the ultimate winery experience for locals and tourists alike.
Time-honoured traditions and commitment to flavour are just a few reasons why “things just taste better at Poderi Crisci”.
