Te Awanga Estate SyrahTe Awanga Estate Syrah

Te Awanga Estate wines are made by famed Hawke’s Bay winemaker, Rod McDonald. He knows the in’s and out’s of the Hawke’s Bay subregions and terroir making wines that are meant to be expressive and last.

Planted 25 years ago by a group of friends in one of Hawke’s Bay’s oldest wine growing areas, Te Awanga is a special piece of dirt.

Hawke’s Bay

Savoury and intense with a spice cabinet of dried herbs, chalky tannins, leather and tobacco and a fine elegance with intensity that keeps you on your toes.

Like a dramatic mens cologne, it entices you, makes you take just one more whiff, just one more sip, and it subtly changes with each nuance melding around your senses.
