Rust Wine Co. South Rock Vineyard Syrah 2017

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSouth Rock Vineyard is on the Golden Mile Bench, and opens in a drier, more peppery style that draws you into the glass. The midpalate is a mix of meaty, peppery licorice notes with just a hint of sweetness, and a long, warm, smoky, peppery finish. The fruit comes off gravel laced clay that seems to paly a small role in the elegance of this wine, as big as it is. You can drink this now or age it for three to five years to let it mellow, but it's fun at this youthful stage and can take on some pretty robust items like lamb, duck, venison, or wild boar.Tasted: 10 April 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 37.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Rust Wine Co.Distributors: Winery Direct
