Sunrock Vineyard Shiraz 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSunrock is a unique site: established in 1999, 180 acres on the Osoyoos Lake Bench, with vines tucked up against a granite rock face, facing Osoyoos Lake, and planted on loamy, silky sands. The shiraz is sourced from the top of the vineyard, absorbing the long sun hours, and transforming it into a rich, smooth red lined with tobacco, and filled with baked plum pudding, cherries and raspberry jam. Tannins are sticky and moderate, and the grape's characteristic peppercorns prominent. This aged in a mix of French and American oak for 14 months, all of which is felt, but not overwhelmed. A big wine style, well handled.Tasted: 22 December 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 27.49 BCLS Producer: Arterra WinesDistributors: Arterra Wines Canada
