Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The 2008 vintage of Quinta Ferreira Estate Winery Syrah is 13.7% ABV and plum purple colour. The wine offers supple aromatics with flavours of ripe strawberry, plum, and hints of black pepper, blackberry, hazelnut, dark chocolate and black sage. The Syrah fruit was grown in the desert climate of the Black Sage Bench in Oliver British Columbia, B.C. Canada, in the heart of the BC VQA Okanagan Valley, referred to as a primary wine capital of Canada. Medium plus tannins and full bodied, this wine is well balanced and juicy. Tasted early 2015, this wine is well integrated and will be easily enjoyed 2015-2020. Recommend enjoying with pepperoni pizza with sundried tomatoes, Portugese prepared salmon, savoury seared pork tenderloin, beef chili, lamb steaks, beef stew, Montreal smoked meat. 91 points.

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.
