Product Details

This standout Syrah absolutely wowed our judges and we know it will wow you too! An amazing expression of cool climate Syrah, this wine is elegant and vibrant. Offering slight hints of juniper, blueberry and pepper, it is well balanced on the palate.

While Syrah and Shiraz are in fact born of the same varietal, their character does differ - Shiraz tends to be bold and rich while Syrah is lighter and more subtle. Generally in New Zealand and Australia, Syrah refers to the varietal when grown in a cooler climate. If you’re looking for something a little more elegant and complex, then Syrah is for you. We love the delicate flavours of Syrah and this aromatic, feminine style surprised us with its balance and finesse.

The Squealing Pig Syrah palate explodes with dark berries and spice up front, before tapering to tart blueberry accompanied by wonderfully silky tannins. From Hawke's Bay in New Zealand this wine deserves to be awarded our Best Of for 2017. A genuinely outstanding drop.

    Very velvety smooth for a shiraz and one that will be a good transition for those looking to switch to shiraz. Great fruit flavours also.

    Delicious NZ red that goes down easily. Not too overpowering or extreme as it is the Syrah style. A smattering of white pepper balances out the richness of the fruit making for an elegant wine.
