Tightrope Winery Syrah

Tightrope Winery Syrah 2016

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAn all Naramata syrah reflecting moderate mid-valley temperatures, and a co-ferment with six to seven percent viognier gives us a pleasant, drinkable style that is very food-friendly. It was fermented in small lots after a five-day cold soak, collecting colour without alcohol. It was barrel-aged for ten months, in mostly French oak. The nose is highly perfumed with violets followed by black cherry and blueberry. The finish is silky soft, ripe, and savoury.Tasted: 27 June 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 35.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Tightrope WineryDistributors: Vintage Corks Limited
