From Olly & Amy:
"Halcyon Days wines are biogro organic certified, handpicked, naturally fermented, unfined, unfiltered, with no additions. We use time honoured methods to create striking wines that are a dynamic expression of Halcyon’s place, Heretaunga, Hawke’s Bay.
2020 was a warm dry season, again an excellent vintage in Hawke’s Bay. We picked beautiful clean fruit at optimum balance and maturity. The season also meant an excellent Syrah vintage so we wanted to explore what we could do with this grape.
HALCYON DAYS 'LUZ' (Pronounced "Luth")
Blend: Syrah and Pinot Noir whole bunch fermented, un-oaked
“Light” to reflect the luminosity of the 2020 vintage and a great year for Syrah. A lot of whole bunch, gentle extraction aiming for a bright fresh lighter bodied style.
The Syrah is from the certified organic Bridge Pa vineyard in the Bridge Pa Triangle.
On the eye: Plum, purple hue
On the nose: Violets and rose petals, blueberries, dark chocolate, black pepper/mediterranean herb
On the palate: Fresh vibrant fruit, with sanguine notes, light body and bright acidity.
Note: This wine would appreciate a decant...."
