THE HAY PADDOCK
In 2002 Chris Canning and Brian Mogridge decided to plant a vineyard on Waiheke Island devoted solely to Syrah. Production of their flagship wine is limited each year to a hand picked selection of rows and vines from throughout the vineyard. The wine is available to members of The Hay Paddock Syrah Society and to selected top restaurants and fine wine dealers and collectors. This wine is produced for friends, collectors and enthusiasts who appreciate the value of cellaring and who join the proprietors in their exploration of a defining wine style for New Zealand Syrah in the manner of Hermitage.
