Spade Oak ‘Voysey’ Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2017

08-Nov-2018

One of Steve and Eileen Voysey’s most popular wines from the Spade Oak range is the ‘Voysey’ Syrah. Steve and Eileen take great care in growing it in their Gisborne vineyard, and Steve cleverly handles the fruit to make a fruit-focussed style of excellent accessibility. There’s the inclusion of some Viognier, supple extraction and maceration, and just the right amount of oak. Interestingly, the variety performs successfully with consumer appeal in all manner of growing seasons. Here, I review the 2017 ‘Voysey’ Hawke’s Bay Syrah, bottling that is based on Hawke’s Bay wine, due to the very strong demand for the original Gisborne-fruited wine. They make an interesting comparison, the similarities stronger than the differences. www.spadeoak.co.nz
