2011 SYRAH

This deeply coloured syrah is drinking beautifully now and will continue to develop into the 2020’s. Hand picked on April 1 2011, matured in French barriques and cellared in The Landing’s underground barrel room, this is an elegant yet powerful wine. With fragrant fruit flavours, silky tannins and aromas of honey, and dark chocolate, we love this wine with a tender cut of venison, beef or even tuna – lightly charred on the barbeque.

2013 SYRAH

Hand-picked at the end of March 2013 at 24.5 brix, the fruit was immediately crushed and fermented in open top stainless steel vats followed by 16 months of maturation in French oak barriques. Deep red in colour and full of flavour, this is a refined and elegant Syrah which reflects the hot dry summer the north enjoyed. Inviting bouquet of ripe black fruits with black currant, raspberry and blue berry; pepper, brown spices and chocolate, a touch of clove and black honey. On the palate – delicious! All that the bouquet suggests with core of fruit, meaty to fine tannins, medium+ acidity, full of flavour, complexity and finish. Drink now and through 2020. It is the perfect match for venison, lamb or simply enjoyed with a wedge of your favourite cheese.

VINEYARD

The story of wine production in New Zealand is thought to have started when vines were planted in the Bay of Islands by Reverend Samuel Marsden in 1819. In later years, the Purerua Peninsula became a thriving hub due to its fertile soils and abundant marine life. The Landing has continued to harness the richness and spirit of the area with the establishment of an innovative, sustainable vineyard.

Founded in 2007, the vineyard covers nine hectares on a gently undulating slope overlooking Wairoa Bay. The vineyard’s close proximity to the water means it enjoys a regular sea breeze, which keeps the vines dry, and coastal soil that imparts unique mineral flavours. These uncommon factors are complimented by The Landing’s location within a rain shadow, protected by the hills from prevailing winds. The vineyard sits, in essence, within a unique microclimate.

To suit the special nature of these surroundings, new ways forward in production have been developed. Vines are planted with wide spacing to welcome the sunshine, and there is no irrigation, meaning the roots have to push deep into the soil. This helps to balance the effects of both rain and drought, as the further the roots go into the soil, the more consistent the water source and nutrients become. As a result, the wines hold flavours and levels of complexity not seen before.

The Landing Wines currently produce Rosé, Syrah and Chardonnay. Plantings have expanded over recent years to include Sangiovese, Pinot Gris, Montepulciano, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Processed at local winery, Marsden Estate, by award-winning winemaker Rod McIvor, the wines are then cellared on the property at The Landing.
