Clos du Soleil Winemaker's Series Middle Bench Vineyard Syrah 2020

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis syrah cones from Cawston's Blind Creek Vineyard, with a 3% splash of viognier from Keremeos's La Côte Vineyard. The destemmed viognier was cofermented with the syrah over 3 weeks, prior to being pressed into French barrels (5% new) for 16 months. Dusky and sultry blackberry, black plum is seasoned with pipe tobacco and perfumed dark florals across a long, silken palate. Tannins are fine and firm and cedar scented, lining this fuller red through a stony and saline finish. Savoury and structured, this is one for the cellar, yet welcoming drinking now (with some airtime), ideally with BC lamb.Tasted: 08 March 2023Tasted by: Prices:
