Corcelettes Syrah 2018

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaIt was a pleasure to taste this wild, dry, desert styled syrah. The fruit comes off the home estate on the Upper Bench of Keremeos, grown in the local Stemwinder soils. The site is dry and windswept, much as it is in the Northern Rhone. The nose is a smoky mix of black fruits and black pepper with strong garrigue notes of Okanagan sagebrush. They continue to a rich, dry, structured syrah that seems years from ultimate maturity. Some sweet black raspberry pulls you into the back end of the wine and holds your interest through 2025. Serve now if you must with a rich lamb ragu or even lamb meatballs and root vegetables.Tasted: 21 May 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
