Syrah in South Okanagan is unique and deserves the attention of the world. Resulting wines are neither like the Shiraz’s we have come to know from Australia and South Africa, nor like the Syrah’s we have come to know from Rhone Valley and south of France.

The  2008 Syrah, comprised of 4 clones fermented with a few percent viognier was mostly grown on the Black Sage Bench with a little fruit blended from the Golden Mile. The resulting effort is a very complex wine. Even though the age of the vines are quite young, the resulting wine has surprised us and captivated us from vineyard to bottle.

Combining elements of both old world and new world, our Syrah is leaning more toward what you would expect from the old world - hence the name. Nuanced, elegant and refined. Black peppercorn rubbed steak, game, mélange of wild berries, bacon and smoke make up the aromatics and flavor profile of this wine. Tasting mighty fine already, this wine should deliver loads of pleasure upon release in Spring of 2011..

Recommended Food Pairing:
Black peppercorn crusted New York Steak helps to bring out more of the pepper nuances found in this wine.

This wine was incredible!
I feel it could have aged another 10 years and developed nicely.
Very bold but not too overpowering.
There are definitely some amazing red wines produced in the Okanagan!
