Church Road McDonald Series Syrah
95/100 Bob Campbell - a class act!

Church Road McDonald Series Syrah

2015, Hawkes Bay New Zealand

Duck Lamb
  • A label dedicated to Church Road legend Tom McDonald, some call him the "Father of red wine in NZ"
  • Produced from the Gimblett Road and Bridge Pa sub regions in Hawke's Bay
  • 5 Stars, 95/100 (Bob Campbell MW) - "Aromatic and appealing wine that’s deliciously drinkable now but should still develop well"

Church Road's wine label celebrating the life of wine legend Tom McDonald (dubbed the "Father of red wine in New Zealand" by some).

Tom was a spotty faced teenager in 1921 when his career in wine kicked off. Over the next 55 years he turned winemaking in Hawke's Bay on its head, scooping many accolades for his premium, complex Chardonnay and Bordeaux-style reds. You don't get awarded the Order of the British Empire for nothing you know!

What a dedication they've given him! This is a class act year after year - two of the recent vintages have taken Champion Syrah at the Air NZ Wine Awards and for the third vintage in a row (2015) Hawke's Bay winemakers were clicking their heels in excitement with near perfect growing conditions producing simply ridiculously good wines, especially reds.

That's exactly why Bob Campbell scored it an incredible 95/100, calling it "An aromatic and appealing wine that’s deliciously drinkable now but should still develop well." Try up until 2023 if you want to lay some down in the cellar.

Syrah's going off so if you're new to this variety it's seriously time to find out what the fuss is about. Nobody does it better than Hawke's Bay and this is Hawke's Bay Syrah at its finest. A soft, silky style red with a touch of spice that will leave you grabbing a second glass in a flash!
