Clos du Soleil Grower's Series Syrah Middle Bench Vineyard 2014

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaClos du Soleil’s first ever syrah to be released under the Growers Series disappeared fast. The nose is an enticing mix of cracked black pepper and floral, deep blueberry fruit aromas and flavours. Classic savoury stony Similkameen on the finish, with just enough tannins to take on grilled lamb. Picked by hand at peak maturity, the grapes are fermented in small open top fermenters for a full month, with manual, daily punch-downs. It’s aged for 16 months in French oak barrels. Sold out, but look for this in better BC restaurants.Tasted: 11 October 2017Tasted by: Prices: BC 32.90 winery direct Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
