Description

Fruit from both the Black Sage Bench and Golden Mile sub-appellations come together in an elegant and refined Okanagan tribute to the Rhône Valley. A small amount of Viognier is co-fermented, adding an aromatic lift to a nose of freshly cracked black pepper, spice, and soft red fruit. Balanced oak integration in a relatively cool vintage was paramount in allowing this wine to remain remarkably fresh.

This is a very deep, ripe, classic south Okanagan syrah with real Rhonish, or south of France character. It is 90% from Osoyoos fruit. Expect a huge ripe dark cherry, peppery, licorice and violet nose. It is rich, firm and notably mineral and spicy on the palate - drop dead gorgeous. Lovely in-filled and elegant texture. Excellent to outstanding length. This will age well ten years if you can keep your hands off. Tasted February 2016

Connoisseur Note(s):

Cuvee Classic is the North Oliver LVP syrah picked at 3.15 tons to acre that spends 13 months in 32 percent new French oak barrels. A little more New World and a little less Old World in a warm 2014. It’s still savoury and brooding, with plenty of floral black fruits, a whack of meaty bacon fat and cracked black pepper. The acidity is prominent but it falls in line at the back end. Grilled lamb seems such a natural fit here but anything big and meaty will work. Or, be rewarded with three to five years in the cellar.
