Bartier Bros. Syrah Cerqueira Vineyard

Bartier Bros. Syrah Cerqueira Vineyard 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is a dark-fruited, aromatic expression of Syrah that's distinctly Okanagan: 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 really opens up in the glass so give this some time. Made from fruit grown at Cerqueira Vineyard on the Black Sage Gravel Terrace, the majority 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: Geoffrey MossPrices: BC 30.34 private wine stores Producer: Bartier Bros.Distributors: Winery Direct
