Syrah Wine Details
Price: $30.00 per bottle

Description: This wine is calculated to set a new benchmark for Okanagan Valley Syrah combining varietal intensity and a broad range of aromatic and flavour complexity. Rich blackberry aromas and flavours set the stage for outgoing spicy, floral overtones that run from floral violets to spicy clove and cola with hints of leather, mincemeat and classic cracked white pepper. Big and full bodied, this wine projects both finesse and vibrance. A great celebration of Syrah varietal character brought to perfection.

Varietal Definition
Syrah is the eight hundred pound gorilla of Rhone grapes! In the vineyard and the winery, Syrah is typically an easy grape to work with - healthy, early ripening, resistant to mildew and rot; suitable for winemaking in a variety of styles. The wines from Syrah are tannic without being harsh. The wines will have a taste and smell of dark blue fruit like blackberries and blackcurrant, with a strong spicy side where one can find freshly ground pepper and other spices. Syrah is famous for its part in the French blends, such as Côtes du Rhone and Châteauneuf du Pape.
