Join us for the release of our much-anticipated 2016 Syrah!
2016 was a spectacular vintage and this wine is only produced in the very best years. Our winemaker, Richie Roberts, hasn’t made this wine since the celebrated 2012 vintage, and there were only 125 cases produced of the new 2016 vintage. For this weekend only, enjoy a complimentary cheese & charcuterie sampler when you purchase a glass of the Syrah; $15 per person.
This Syrah has expressive aromas of blackberry, cassis, black pepper and smoke. The dark fruit flavours are ripe and concentrated on the palate, which is complemented by a distinct smoky character and underlying notes of thyme an clove. The palate is rich and full-bodied with outstanding texture and structure, resulting in an age-worthy red to cellar for years to come. All of the grapes were hand-harvested from two blocks in the Lowrey Vineyard, on St. David’s Bench. It was aged for 20 months in French oak and was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Can't make it to our release weekend? The 2016 Syrah will be available for purchase ($54.95) via our website on October 21st, 2019!
