Reviews and Ratings

Julian Park rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The Syrah was co-fermented with 5% Viognier to enhance the floral and fruity notes and to provide a rounder mouth feel. After a slow and warm fermentation, the wine underwent another 10 days of maceration to extract more phenolic compounds. The wine spent 18 months in 40% new French and American oak barrels.  135 cases of Syrah were produced.

Full-bodied with a luscious mouth feel, the tannins are lifted by a hint of acidity. Aromas of blueberry, blackberry are followed on the palate by savoury notes of black olive, cinnamon and smoked bacon. The wine lingers with pepper notes on the long finish.  Drinkable now but will definitely improve with age.

The 2014 Syrah won a bronze award at the National Wine Awards of Canada.

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.
