All the grapes for this Syrah were sourced exclusively from the Naramata Bench and is co-fermented with Viognier (3%), which accounts for its deep colour and floral hints on the nose. This wine was fermented in small lots, of approximately 1 ton each and was cold
soaked for 5 days, before fermentation was begun. The wine was barrel aged for 10 months, in mostly French oak, with a small percentage of American oak, for added complexity.
On the nose there are violets, black pepper, blackberry and dark cherry. The palate has flavours of plum, anise, blackcurrant along with, spice, leather and savory notes, all balanced with soft, silky tannins.
This wine goes well with herb crusted lamb roast,braised beef and aged cheeses such as gouda.
