Gastronomy Shiraz, 2020

Shipped and sold by Niagara College Teaching Winery

2020 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 13.5% ALC/VOL
This wine was fermented in small lots and hand-plunged throughout fermentation. It was aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 20 months before racking and bottled without filtration. It appears dark ruby-purple in the glass with aromas of fresh black cherries, blackberries, cracked pepper, smoke and tobacco. The palate is full but fresh with well-structured tannins that will lend age-ability to this wine.

Pairing Suggestions: Try with grilled meats, lamb Shawarma or nutty sheep’s cheeses

Sweetness Level: Dry

Grape Varieties: Syrah - shows more like a Shiraz due to the significantly dry warm vintage of 2020
