Small Lots Syrah 2013

Platinum Medal Winner - British Columbia Wine Awards


FLAVOUR PROFILE
Bright purple garnet colour with a wonderful bouquet of dark plums, violet, currant, cherry, leather and spice box. This full-bodied wine has silky tannins, food-friendly acidity, and plenty of juicy fruit flavours of ripe black fruits accented by notes of spice and cedar. Notes of juicy tart black fruits, chocolate, spice and vanilla linger through on the finish.


FOOD PAIRINGS
Serve with lightly spiced London broils; braised meats; roasted leg of lamb with eggplant, tomato and onion ‘ragout’; bean and lentil stews; pepper steaks; Beemster XO Gouda.


WINEMAKER NOTES
“The 2013 Syrah from Richard Cleave’s Phantom Creek Vineyard shows intense plummy fruit, floral notes, velvety tannins and beautiful balance, unique to his site. This vintage is of a long line of distinguished vintages that have won top awards; in particular, at the 2009 Canadian Wine Awards, the 2007 Syrah was tied for Red Wine of the Year. The Phantom Creek Vineyard has been acknowledged by Wine Access magazine as 'One of the Top Ten Vineyards in the World', and the only Canadian vineyard mentioned.” ~ Howard Soon
