Description

The 2013 Spadefoot Syrah has blackberry, raspberry, black cherry, white pepper, and well integrated oak. It is medium bodied, has a bright acidity, firm but round tannins, and longer finish.

An age-worthy blend of Syrah clones #7, #99 & #100 grown at Ron Firman’s certified organic Spadefoot Toad Vineyard in Oliver, BC. Aged 30 months in mostly neutral oak barriques

Unfined and unfiltered, this natural wine may drop sediment or wine crystals. Decanting recommended.

Appearance: Deep purple in colour.

Nose: Cedary, blackberry nose with light herbal and white pepper notes.

Palate: Medium to full-bodied, dry and savoury, blackberry flavour carried on lively acidity.  Broad and muscular on the palate with enough tannin to give grip and structure. Lovely mouthfeel and a warm alcoholic finish.
