Code Wines Single Clone Syrah 2020

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis new Okanagan winery is the vision of Shay and Harlee Code, the farmers and owners of this organic 5-acre Okanagan Falls east bench estate. They began planting in 2017 with chardonnay and syrah. Over the past three years, they've made their wines at Naramata's Roche Winery but have recently launched their operation. This 2020 Syrah is from a single unknown clone planted in 2017 across two blocks on their Peach Cliff Mountain estate vineyard. It spent one year in French oak (25% new) bottled unfined and unfiltered. Sultry and silken dark plum, brooding blackberry, and downy violet fill a juicy, softer palate with fuzzy/furry tannins and a slurry of cracked pepper on the brief finish—a gentle syrah for taking now with a chill and plate of grilled sausages.Tasted: 16 October 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
