Syrah is a red grape variety grown all over the world, but it is associated in particular with the Rhône region of France, as well as Australia (Shiraz). The style and flavour profile of wines made from Syrah grapes vary widely depending on the region and winemaking techniques, but in general, Syrah wines tend to be medium to full-bodied, mouth-filling wines with dark fruits, spices (often pepper) and floral/herbal notes dominating. Over the last few years, the South Okanagan has been recognized as a consistent producer of world-class, elegant and complex Syrah.
A medium-bodied, rich and elegant vintage of Moon Curser Syrah, with a medium ruby colour in the glass. The lower fruit yields experienced in the Okanagan in 2019 have created lovely aromas of dark fruit and gorgeous floral notes. The palate has a beautiful concentration of savoury flavours such as fresh cigar, dark wood and violets backed up by soft, approachable tannins with a rich, round midpalate. The balanced acidity causes the wine to linger with a finish of clove and a light smokiness from the oak that invites you in for another sip. Bigger and richer than usual, yet approachable and definitely punching above its weight class, our 2019 Syrah drinks wonderfully now but will continue to develop in the bottle if cellared over the next seven years.
