DOPPIO – A new look at Hawke’s Bay Syrah

 

Doppio is a new release Syrah by Ash Ridge that is taking a new look at Hawke’s Bay Syrah. Within the vineyard we have two main clone’s of Syrah, differing vines of the same varietal, that give us completely different flavour spectrums. Normally we blend these clonal wines to give us a complex final wine, however with DOPPIO we have decided to show off the clonal differences from vines grown literally meters apart. We believe this is a first for a New Zealand Winery to show these differences in a final packaged wine, and after 3 years of hard work the first vintage (2014) is now on release. With only 1 barrel made of each clone, only 288 two packs have been produced, not only making this wine very special, but also very rare.
