Has depth and interest, and certainly in the zone for lovers of meaty spicy Shiraz.
About The Wine
This is a top example of cool-climate Syrah for those who look for finesse rather than out and out power in their Syrah/Shiraz wines.
With each berry picked individually at perfect ripeness by his 50-person-strong vintage crew, only the very best fruit makes it to the final wine from Hiro Kasuda's tiny Martinborough vineyard.
It's sleek, spicy, meaty in style. A graceful wine with plenty to offer over the next decade.
Hiro's wines sell out incredibly quickly. This won't last long.
Hiro Kusuda is something of an enigma.
This reclusive master winemaker has built his reputation on crafting some of the most exhilarating wines in the Martinborough region.
Astoundingly, during harvest, each berry is hand-picked at optimal ripeness, such is the meticulous nature with which he composes his wines.
Most noted for his sublime Pinot Noir, the Riesling and Syrah both show the architecture of a true craftsman at work.
These wines are extremely rare. If you value detail and precision in your wine, Hiro's creations are often transcendent and are an experience to taste and drink.
