2015 proved to be a great vintage. All of the conditions aligned favourably and Mother Nature cooperated resulting in ripe, concentrated and complex Syrah fruit. All grapes for this wine were handpicked from the Terrace and Silver Bridge Vineyards. Vineyard management and weather conditions resulted in yields of only 2 tons per acre.

Like all Kacaba wines the Signature Series, Reserve Syrah 2015 started with hand harvesting. All grapes were hand sorted, gently destemmed, and left as whole berries for open top fermentation. The grapes were cold soaked to extract colour, flavours and aromatics from the skins before introducing yeast to start fermentation. During fermentation tanks were hand plunged 4 times a day to further the extraction of colour and flavour. After fermentation the wine was pressed off the skins and moved to a mixture of new and second fill French and American oak barrels to complete malolactic fermentation & continue the aging process.

Oh what a beautiful peppery syrah, ripe and floral, all of its aspects, angles and components agreed upon, all in. When Canadian (and in this case, somewhere in Ontario) syrah gets down to business, gets straight to the meaty and smoky point it does so tart, tight and coiled around your tongue and finger. This, right here just nails it. It is the best of times. This is the man. Drink 2019-2027. Tasted blind at #NWAC17, June 2017.

Connoisseur Note(s):

A very pretty Syrah with a dark nose of violet and crunchy blackberries. Where this wine shines is with the freshness on the palate. The acidity is marvelous and creates ultimate drinkability. This is a beautiful example of Syrah and would be perfect served slightly cool with summer roasted lamb. Nice job. 91 Points
