Pakiaka Syrah 2022

$39.90 inc. GST

Translating to ‘Roots’ in te reo Māori, Pakiaka wines are a special branch of the Kemp Road series that are all about celebrating the purity of their origins through minimal intervention and micro-production. The roots of the grapevine signify the winemaker’s use of low-intervention techniques to preserve the sense of its place, while also expressing the origins of the Kemp Family / Rongowhakaata — all of which are intrinsically bound to Papatūānuku.

92/100 – WineFolio

“Translating to mean ‘roots’ in te reo Māori, the ‘22 vintage is a Syrah from a small family-owned vineyard in Hawke’s Bay. A vibrant garnet-purple in the glass, with varietally-precise aromas of damson, cola, boysenberry, red apple, white pepper, oyster shell, tapenade and violet florals. The firm spine combines supple tannin, juicy acidity and a glossy texture into a parcel of complex and well-weighted layers. Flowing and fleshy, there’s also a robustness and distinctive savoury minerality that emerges at the back of the palate. The finish is dry, spicy and lengthy.” – David Walker-Bell, WineFolio
