Sandhill Syrah 2016

Purple garnet colour with a sweet-scented bouquet of dark plum, blueberry jam, dark chocolate, vanilla, sweet baking spice and roasted coffee beans.
This is a dry, full-bodied wine with soft tannins and a juicy, smooth mouth-feel.
Ripe black fruits and warm spices filled the mouth.
The lingering finish shows notes of dark fruits, toasted spice and sweet oak.
Enjoy with peppercorn steaks; braised meats; spiced London broils; red meats in rich reductions; winter stews; game meats; short ribs; beef brisket; saucy barbecued ribs; Beemster 18 month aged Gouda.

The spring began with a blast of heat and a quick start to the season. Summer and fall cooled slightly allowing a slow, long ripening season, ideal for red varietals, and for expressive aromatic whites. The valley saw slightly wetter than normal conditions; however, the vineyards remained healthy. The southern Okanagan Valley experienced 1635 GDD (Growing Degree Days), representing higher than average heat units.

Sandhill’s terroir-driven wine philosophy offers a unique reflection of the geography, topography, soil and climate of different regions, vineyards, and even different sections of the same vineyard – each contributing to the characteristic taste and personality of the wine.
Wine Making Hand-harvested from Sandhill Estate and Vanessa vineyards. Loose crush, gentle but complete extraction of the fruit. Warm fermentation. Aged 14 months in American and French oak barrels.
