2018 silver medal winner at the Lieutenant Governor's Wine Awards
Handpicked organic Syrah grown in fluvioglacial deposits of loamy sand and was hand harvested on Oct 30, 2017 from the South Okanagan. The whole clusters had a gentle press then were placed into our concrete tulip tanks to start the natural fermentation process with nothing more than the native yeasts that exist within the vineyard. Aging was on gross lees and was a combination of stainless and concrete tanks for 4 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered in April 2018 resulted in a living juicy wine, elegant in its expression that unites nature and a delicate hand.
This unapologetically light bodied Syrah is not only a honest expression of this varietal, its bursting with fresh, red fruits. It emulates classic white pepper with a complimentary yet subtle bouquet of lavender, sage and Aloe.
