Description

Our Queenston Road Vineyard in the St. David’s Bench appellation is Syrah country: warm when we need it to be in late October so that red grapes get that final ripening push of heat. The best Syrah from that site always gets an extra boost of lush texture and flavour complexity from the addition of Viognier to the ferment. Every year it is one of our favourite wines to make. And drink. < …and drink…> It’s a juicy bowl of red and black berries, but there’s a bit of meat too- someone has been by with the pepper grinder. Fine-grained tannins a-plenty provide a good backstop for all that flavour. Gracefully subtle acid tension will dance you to the end of love. (Leonard, we miss you already...)

Iconoclast wines are the little brothers of Broken Press, essentially declassified grapes from the flagship wine. The 2015 Syrah gets a smidge of Viognier. The nose is rich and savoury with meaty, bright dark fruits of black currants and cassis with spicy/peppery notes. The tannins are firm here on the palate with a range of meaty dark fruit, bay leaves, pepper, lovely texture and length through the finish. Classic Syrah that will age beautifully as those tannins melt into the wine.
