Bartier Bros. Syrah Cerqueira Vineyard 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA dark-fruited, aromatic expression of syrah that's distinctly Okanagan is a combination of pepper, violets, and sage, alongside iodine and macerated blackberries. It's broad and mouth-filling, with medium-grained, sweet tannins. Still youthful and densely concentrated, it opens up in the glass, so give this some time. Made from fruit grown at Cerqueira Vineyard on the Black Sage Gravel Terrace, most of the fruit was destemmed and crushed, with 10 percent added as whole clusters. After an inoculated fermentation, the wine was aged for 17 months in neutral French oak.Tasted: 13 June 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 30.34 private wine stores Producer: Bartier Bros.Distributors: Stile Brands
