Kenzie Duet Chilled Syrah 2023
Dave MacIntosh explains that this wine is about light versus shade. Its whole bunch Pinot Noir and destemmed Syrah from Mangatahi and Bridge Pa respectively. The light comes in the form of fragrant, pretty fruit aromatics. The dark in the form of spice, herbs and taut dryness.
After 15 successful years of winemaking in Australia, Dave MacIntosh is back in New Zealand reconnecting with the place he grew up, Hawkes Bay / Te Matau a Māui. Fruit for his first releases is sourced from 6 organic/sustainable vineyards from across the region. We love Dave’s willingness to challenge convention in terms of wine style, and his deft winemaking touch in delivering wines of vibrancy, energy and freshness.
