Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
Winemakers: Lorraine Leheny & Warren Gibson
Warren & Lorraine’s La Collina Vineyard is North West Facing on a steep hillside terrace in Hawkes Bay. The hillside is generally well protected from cool southern winds. In good growing seasons the sun allows good even ripening of the fruit.
Even ripeness is very important for Syrah to achieve its maximum potential here. The La Collina Syrah is a wine that has been lauded in every vintage that has been produced, 2002 – 2018, It is our flagship, single vineyard wine.
