2016 Sparkling Syrah
Hello, flavour! Notes of blackberry jam, wild blueberry pie, cola and sweet oak on the nose are followed by flavours of ripe blackberry and baking spices like cinnamon and clove. The persistent mousse and the subtle dark fruit cake flavours on the finish make this the kind of wine you can’t resist. Pair it with fresh oysters, seared sea bass or a summer salad and a shot of sunshine.
The 2016 growing season was long, dry, and warm, with most vineyards maturing their fruit very early and with perfect ripeness. The Syrah grapes used to make this sparkling wine came from the Blind Creek Vineyard in the Similkameen Valley, with a smaller portion of Syrah coming from our vineyards on the Golden Mile sub-appellation of the Okanagan Valley. We believe the combination of these terroirs adds to the final wine's complexity.
