Syrah is an astonishing South Okanagan success story. Our hot, dry growing
conditions are uncannily similar to Syrah’s home base in the Northern Rhone, and
clearly Syrah is at home here too. One third of the 2007 Syrah was fermented in
open top fermenters and the remaining two thirds in small stainless steel tanks.
It was aged for 19 months in new to 2 year old French oak. It was then blended
together before bottling. It then spent over a year in bottle before release.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
