Only the third ever release of a Syrah under Church Road’s iconic TOM series, the pinnacle of wine-making at Church Road from an amazing 2015 Hawke’s Bay vintage. It’s their tribute to one of New Zealand’s winemaking legends, Tom McDonald. The very best parcels of fruit from their Redstone and Bridge Pa Triangle vineyards, a meticulous attention to detail in every aspect of the winemaking process, aged for 22 months in oak, a truly world class example of Syrah that’s a fitting tribute to Tom, nicknamed “The Father of red winemaking in New Zealand“. Exuding opulence, this is a full bodied, seductive style of Hawke’s Bay Syrah. Managing both luxuriousness and elegance with a plushness of texture that is supported by silky tannins.
