The Syrah that grows at our southern Okanagan vineyards is situated on unique south-west facing slopes. At midday in summer the heat is powerful, but Syrah likes that; the terroir evokes its Rhone Valley origins. The wine is structured and balanced with delicate tannins and spice – the direct result of a decision to plant it where it feels right at home.

2019 was up until September, near picture perfect. Warm days, but not too warm, cool nights, but not too cool, set the ripening process on a trajectory of ideal balance. With September came cool weather and some rainfall, but with careful attention to sorting and managing harvest dates, we feel our hard work paid off with wines of ideal balance and intense fruit character. In particular, the lively acidities have produced wines which are lively and fresh.
