X Wines ‘little x’ Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2014

07-Dec-2018

‘little x’ is a brand of ‘X Wines’, the own-label venture of Tim Adams, a viticultural and winemaking consultant for Marlborough Wines Ltd which is the parent company of Toi Toi; he was formerly with Astrolabe Wines. Tim oversees the MLW vineyards in Marlborough and works with growers in Gisborne and Central Otago. Tim has been making Syrah from a tiny shared vineyard of 450 vines in the upper Brancott Valley since 2011, Tim’s lot of the production is only 35-40 cases annually, this being sold locally in Marlborough. His X Wines brand includes a 2018 Syrah and Awatere Pinot Noir which are in the works, but in the meantime has sourced and made a ‘little x’ Syrah to cover no production in 2017, and the wine to also complement the up-coming releases and give a more accessible wine to the portfolio.
