Le Vieux Pin Syrah Airfield

Le Vieux Pin Syrah Airfield 2016

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaIn 2016, Le Vieux Pin released a series of small lot single vineyard syrahs, Airfield being one of them. Only 50 cases were made of this Osoyoos West Bench syrah, sourced from loamy sand and granite, and aged for 19 months in used French barrique. There is a gentle expansion and ripeness on the red fruited palate, though it's studded with structure via the granite and finely firm bracketing of sticky tannins. There's a lovely texture running the length of this syrah to a warming, spiced finish. More deep dives into single terroirs, please. Enjoyed with a slight chill.Tasted: 02 August 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 29.00 winery direct Producer: Le Vieux PinDistributors: Winery Direct (BC), Empson (AB), Lifford (ON), Belanger (QC)
