Description

Auction Lot Details

Sacred Hill is an iconic Hawke’s Bay brand which was founded in 1986. The ultra-premium Special Selection range encompasses Riflemans Chardonnay, Brokenstone and Helmsman Bordeaux blends, and Deerstalkers Syrah. These distinguished and acclaimed wines are made in limited quantities from exceptional vintages and represent the pinnacle of Sacred Hill’s achievements in viticulture and winemaking.

The auction lot, 2021, 2013 and 2010 Deerstalkers, were classic vintages for Hawkes Bay Syrah. Low yielding vines were handpicked from our Deerstalkers vineyard at optimum ripeness and the concentrated fruit was delicately handled through the winemaking process to produce age worthy examples of benchmark Gimblett Gravels Syrah, packed with perfumed aromatics, intense dark berry fruit and spice characters, and rich yet supple tannins.
