CedarCreek Platinum Haynes Creek Single Vineyard Syrah

CedarCreek Platinum Haynes Creek Single Vineyard Syrah 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is the inaugural vintage of Platinum Syrah, built for the 10 year old syrah vines at Haynes Creek Vineyard. Native fermented with 25% whole bunch (plus 1% viognier, for added aromatics), this spends 14 months in French puncheons prior to bottling. Youthful and forward, with plush cassis, wild blackberry, darting violet florals, and finely cracked pepper flushing out the full palate. Tannins are downy and plush, perfectly situated to style. This accessible syrah is ready to go now, ideally with roasted pork or richer duck.Tasted: 12 January 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 49.99 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: CedarCreek Estate WineryDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
