Moon Curser Syrah

Moon Curser Syrah 2017

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaMoon Curser's syrah appears plum coloured in the glass, and the first swirls and sniffs show fragrant oak emphatically, matched by aromas of crushed summer berries, floral perfume, and black pepper. An underlying smoke note and meaty savour completes the arcetypal syrah checklist. Zesty acidity leads the flavour parade, with ripe cassis and blueberry, and vanilla custard notes of oak. Overall there is a lovely cool-climate weight and juiciness to this savoury syrah, with a touch of alcohol warmth on the finish that reminds us that this is the south Okanagan, not the northern Rhone valley. Excellent effort and I'd grill a herb-crusted rack of lamb for dinner.Tasted: 06 November 2019Tasted by: DJ KearneyPrices: BC 25.99 winery direct, select private wine shops, limited restaurants Producer: Moon CurserDistributors: BCWineshop
