Description

Vineyard: 17 rows planted in 1990/1991 on granite bedrock. It is the oldest Syrah vineyard in Canada. 100% Naramata Village.

Wine Making: Hand-picked on October 26th 2015. Fully de-stemmed. Fermented on skins in 2 ton open top fermenters. Basket pressed. Full malolactic fermentation in Neutral French barrique. Raised in a combination of 2-5 year old 500 litre puncheons and barrique. Bottled unfined and unfiltered in March 2016.

Tasting Note: The 2015 vintage was slightly cooler than 2014 and has yielded more restrained, focused Old Vines Syrah - more akin to 2010. On the tighter mor delineated side and less obviously opulent side look for dark black fruits, licorice, the typical game and leather notes all wrapped in a touch of black pepper. We actually think this may be drinking easier right now than the more hard edged 2010 and 2011 vintages but in a similar vein. We think a very ageworthy vintage (time will tell) we think this will be wonderful over the next 10 years. Drink 2019-2027 Please decant.
