Syrah

Description

This vintage of Long Road Syrah is entirely from the incredible Hans Estate Vineayrd, located directly below the Mission Hill Oculus block on the East Osoyoos Bench. Enjoying a very high degree of slope and directly West facing, this location has shown to produce some of our most opulent and intense Syrahs in The Okanagan.

All de-stemmed after gentle sorting at the winery, this wine was fermented slowly at 25 degrees Celsius to fully maximize extraction of the abundantly ripe fruit. After fermentation was complete, the wine was finished in a mix of new and older French oak (50/50) for 16 months. This vintage has an incredible mixture of concentration and elegance. Despite the intensity at this stage, the wine remains beautifully smooth and pleasant to drink at this point, but shows enough stuffing to it that indicates it will have a long and complex life ahead.
