Maverick Estate Winery Bush Vine Syrah 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis syrah won a platinum medal at the 2021 National Wine Awards of Canada and it easily lives up to the hype. The fruit is pure and vibrant, with a balanced ripeness that clocks in at just 13% abv. What really sets it apart is the expressive aromatics, with perfumed violets and savoury spices, nicely accented by integrated wood. It's the real deal, and impressively structured and suave, too. Sure, it's tempting to compare this to the Northern Rhône, but that could be selling it short. Okanagan syrah like this can stand on its own on any stage, and at a fraction of the price, too. Highly recommended.Tasted: 20 April 2022Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices:
