Spade Oak ‘Voysey’ Syrah 2015

22-Aug-2017
When thinking Gisborne wine, whites invariable come to mind first. But the region has proven to be successful with traditional and innovative reds as well. Both Merlot and Malbec appear to produce quality wines, and now Syrah is on the scene, supported by the polarising Pinotage variety, but also the exciting St Laurent and Tempranillo varieties. In my opinion, Syrah may be the best red variety to back in Gisborne, and experienced and forward thinking growers such as Steve Voysey of Spade Oak have made many very good wines. He and his wife Eileen have Syrah in their flagship ‘Vigneron’ tier, but the accessible ‘Voysey’ bottlings are a success story. I believe Steve and Eileen would like to be able to make much more than they already do. Here, I review the new release 2015 Spade Oak ‘Voysey’ Syrah. www.spadeoak.co.nz
