Sandhill Syrah 2015

FLAVOUR PROFILE
Purple garnet colour with a sweet-scented bouquet of blue plum, oak, baking spice and chocolate.
This is a dry, medium to full-bodied wine with soft tannins and a juicy mouth-feel.
Ripe fruit flavours suggesting blueberry, dark plum and black cherry are accented by notes of chocolate.
The lingering finish shows notes of tangy blackberries, black currant and spice.
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.

GROWING CONDITIONS
The southern Okanagan Valley experienced back-to-back seasons of extreme heat units in 2014 and 2015, which saw 1702 and 1764 Growing Degree Days, respectively. The 2015 vintage saw the highest recorded GDD since the record-breaking 1998 vintage at 1778 GDD. The long, warm, sunny and dry growing period provided a good size crop of high quality fruit. Look for white wines with pure fruit expression and big bold reds with soft tannins and ripe, rich fruit. 2015 is another epic vintage for the history books.

WINEMAKER NOTES
“As a grape varietal, Syrah is known for its vigorous and active growing cycle, so a watchful eye must be kept on it to ensure the fruit production remains reigned in. Keeping the yields small helps ensure premium fruit concentration. This truly was an ideal growing season for Syrah in the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys.”
Wine Making Loose crush, gentle but complete extraction of the fruit. Warm fermentation. Aged 14 months in American and French oak barrels.
