Launched in 2013 Blank Canvas is a Master of Science (Matt Thompson) and a Master of Wine (Sophie Parker-Thomson MW) pair crafting small batch wines from three famous New Zealand wine regions Marlborough, Hawke's Bay, and Central Otago.
Since their launch, their primary focus has been about highlighting the intimate details of each single vineyard expression. Today they celebrate nine exceptional and sustainable single vineyards, and these single vineyard wines are suitability matched to the right grape variety, whilst adhering to the right soil type, microclimate, and its qualities. The result - every wine tells a story, speaking of the exact place and time it is from.

Tasting Note: (from the winery)
In the true expression of cool-climate Syrah, this wine exudes freshly cracked black pepper, crushed violets, red and black forest fruits and savoury smoky nuances. It has crunchy lifted acidity which carries the defined, fine-grain tannins and background of spicy, savoury oak. This wine is about fragrance and texture, which is assisted by our pioneering co-fermentation technique with a small proportion of Gruner Veltliner skins as well as whole-cluster fermentation. The co-fermentation gives a white pepper spice quality to the flavour spectrum and intensifies and stabilises the brilliant purple hue of Syrah. The result is layers of complexity in flavour and tannins which will allow an intriguing long-term ageing potential.

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with Medium+ acidity and Low tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
