Clos du Soleil Winemaker's Series Syrah 2021

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe 2021 Winemaker's Series Syrah comes from Blind Creek Vineyard in Cawston, and is cofermented with 3% viognier off La Côte Vineyard in Keremeos. After 3 weeks in concrete fermenters, this was basket pressed into French oak barrels (15% new) where it rested for 16 months. Savoury and wild with grilled meats, thorny wild blackberry, charcuterie, and cracked peppercorn, this is kissed with purple florals which linger on the finish. Tannins are muscular, though well absorbed into the stony fruit, structurally framing this through the finish.Tasted: 29 January 2024Tasted by: Prices:
