Bartier Bros. Syrah Cerqueira Vineyard

Bartier Bros. Syrah Cerqueira Vineyard 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Black Sage Terrace's Cerqueira Vineyard, this deep, dusky syrah was ten percent whole cluster, native ferment in neutral French oak barrels. After 14 months in wood, this was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Blueberry, blackberry, black cherry jam is infiltrated with thorns, pipe tobacco, peppery spicing, perfumed musk and dried violets. There's a lovely hint of feldspar, manganese throughout this wine. Tannins are plush, as is the full body, finishing with a flush of warmth.Tasted: 10 September 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 30.34 private wine stores Producer: Bartier Bros.Distributors: Stile Brands
