2017 Small Lot Syrah

Regular price $30.00

Rated 93 Points By Wine Current

Tasting Notes:

This wine is a purply-blue colour. It is showing aromas of red currant, violets and crushed up gravel. It is grippy and firm in the mouth. It has a silky side that will take a couple of years to come out and finishes with a long, red berry aftertaste. 

Winemaking Notes:

This Syrah was de-stemmed and crushed and put into stainless steel tanks for fermentation. It was pumped-over twice daily for 19 days. It was then pressed and moved into French oak barrels where it rested for about 18 months. 

Food Pairing:

This Syrah would be a great partner for a hearty beef stew flavoured with thyme and rosemary. Or try a Veggie friendly version by using mushrooms instead of beef in your stew.
