Winemakers Notes: A small barrel selection from three different vineyard parcels in the South Okanagan Valley, aged 18 months in neutral French oak barrels. A small portion of the wine (~20%) was fermented using whole clusters, providing an added layer of clover, mint, and allspice notes from the stems. Bottled unfined & Unfiltered.
Nose: Plum, clove, allspice, smoked meat, pepper corn, lavender, black olive, and bacon with background notes of black fruits.
Palate: A Medium-plus bodied wine that starts with layers of dark fruit and sweet spice and tapers off to a peppery finish. Texturally, the wine has enough acidity and tannin from the stem inclusion to remain fresh and lively without feeling heavy or thick.
Pairing Suggestions: Blue cheese bacon burger. Soft, stinky cheeses. Anything barbecued or spiced with Herbes de Provence.
There is an underlying earthiness to our 2017 Reserve Syrah, with notes of blackberry and redcurrant fruit, plum, chocolate. It's big, beautiful and very delicious.
