Syrah has become a powerful varietal for BC winegrowers, both in terms of its success in growing well in the south Okanagan, and for what it has been delivering in the glass. Estate grown on our Perfect Hedge vineyard in Osoyoos, the style is inspired by Côte-Rôtie in the northern Rhône, blending 95% Syrah with 5% Viognier. This classic technique gives the nose a slight floral lift and softens the pepper note ever so slightly.
INSIDER TIP: 100% of this wine was fermented as whole berry, which slows down the release of tannins imparting a silkiness to the tannins and a lush roundness to the Syrah.
