Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Syrah is always done well by Creekside Winery, as it is one of their signature grapes (the other being Sauvignon Blanc) and one that is equally fun to enjoy. Unlike their Australian Shiraz cousin, this cool climate Syrah is ruby coloured with aromas of blackberry, dark plum, roasted red pepper, dried fruit, and lingering green peppercorn. Flavours reveal loads of blackberry blue fruit and sweet green bell peppers. Dry, with juicy elevated acidity. Enjoy on its own or with a variety of small bites, meats, cheeses and peppercorn pâté. Tasted October 2020
Trent Mayers rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

If you’re a fan of cool climate Syrah with some similarities to the Northern Rhone style, you’ll appreciate this good value wine. It has a pleasing ruby colour in the glass with a medium body and definite cool climate notes of black and white pepper, plums, spice, and Montreal smoked meat. That character makes it tie in with other smoke cured foods like smoked duck breast. Drink now until 2023.
