La Collina, the premium Syrah from the exceptional boutique producer Bilancia, is often considered one of New Zealand's finest releases of this varietal. The grapes are grown on a terraced vineyard with a sloping hillside (la collina means "the hill" in Italian) on the northern side of Roy's Hill, near the Gimblett Gravels. Its charming flavors of blackberry, spice, and oak notes make it a standout, and its tannic grip is particularly noteworthy.

Bilancia Vineyard
About Bilancia

Bilancia is a small Hawke's Bay producer of exceptional Chardonnay and Syrah. It is the label of husband and wife winemakers Lorraine Leheny and Warren Gibson and was established in 1997 when Lorraine and Warren returned to New Zealand from winemaking overseas. The first wines were released in mid 1998.

The word Bilancia (be-larn-cha) means, in Italian, balance, equilibrium and harmony. These terms have obvious connections with wine and winemaking, but also, Bilancia is the Italian word for the Zodiac sign Libra which the two winemakers were born under. Warren worked in Southern Italy for a number of harvests, and the name came to him whilst reading his Horoscope in the Italian newspaper! The philosophy of balance, equilibrium and harmony is something that is carried through all aspects of the winemaking.

The viticultural central point for Bilancia is the 6 hectares (15 acres) of land covering the front and back of Roys Hill where, planted only on the North - Northwest facing slope is the vineyard known as la collina (col-ee-na), which is Italian for "the hill". The uppermost slopes and terraces are planted to Syrah whilst the lower gently rising land and gravels flat is planted to Chardonnay with eight rows of Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne of the edge of the gravels. All fruit is sourced from Hawke's Bay vineyards: Syrah from la collina and Roys Hill, Chardonnay from la collina (Tiratore), Roys Hill and Otane (Central Hawke's Bay).
