Natalie's Score: 92/100
Burrowing Owl 2018 Syrah is a full-bodied concentrated Syrah, a bit broody with firm and chewy tannins right now, but give it a bit more cellar time -- about two years to start showing its best. Right now, the wine is showing a tremendous amount of dark berry fruit, smoky spice, cracked pepper and earthy vanilla flavours concentrated on the palate. Try in 2023. Produced by Wyse Family Wines.
Syrah food pairings: lamb tagine, roast rack of lamb, beef long ribs on the barbie.

Reviews and Ratings
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Very aromatic, with lots of black currant and blackberry notes, along with violets, black pepper and smoke. On the palate this wine is full bodied and smooth with some soft, velvety tannins, and plush, ripe black fruit flavours. The floral and spicy hints come through on the finish, which is quite lengthy. This wine would be great with any rustic mushroom or lentil dishes, or slow-braised beef short ribs.

Burrowing Owl's 2018 Syrah was sourced from their estate Black Sage
Bench estate vineyard in Oliver, and their Eva vineyard in Osoyoos. A blend of 97% Syrah and 3% Viognier, the grapes were hand picked and sorted, vinified then barrel aged for 15 months in a blend of 54% French, 30% American, 13% Hungarian, and 3% Russian oak, 27% new oak, 4% one-year, and 69% neutral oak. Deep ruby red in colour, the nose shows spicy pepper, dark cherries, plum, blueberry, bacon, and graphite. Smooth, full bodied, with fine integrated tannins, the dark fruit and pepper makes this a great wine to enjoy with grilled peppercorn-crusted Rib Eye or braised dishes. Enjoy 2021-2026. Tasted May 2021. 91 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
