The BOV Syrah has never been a shy wine, and 2019 is no different. The meaty, peppery nose mixes with savoury, peppery, sagebrush notes that fire up the heat and oak in the wine. The palate is awash in black raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry mixed with more toasted oak and a meaty soy finish. In late October, the fruit was picked off two sites: the Burrowing Owl Vineyard (Oliver), and Eva’s Vineyards (Osoyoos). It is all hand sorted, barely crushed and gravity fed into the fermentation tanks. A portion of the syrah grapes is co-fermented with viognier before going through a softening malolactic fermentation in barrel and 16 months of ageing in a mix of new and used oak. For the moment, lamb shoulder is the best friend of this wine, or another seven to ten years in the bottle.
