All the grapes for this Syrah were sourced exclusively from the Naramata Bench.  It was also co-fermented with Viognier, which accounts for its deep colour and floral hints on the nose.  This wine was fermented in small lots, of approximately 1 ton each and was cold soaked for 5 days, before fermentation was begun.  The wine was barrel aged for 10 months, in mostly French oak, with a small percentage of American oak, for added complexity.

Ratings
John Schreiner-92 points, Graham and Lyndsay O’Rourke learned their winemaking skills in New Zealand before the Canadians moved to British Columbia. Together, they have created one of the most dynamic wineries in the province. This Syrah uses grapes from the warm Naramata Bench near Penticton. On the aromas, this provides notes of wild game meats and ripe plum. On the palate, it shows off flavors of huckleberry, vanilla cream and a sprinkling of cocoa powder. It’s all backed by remarkable structure that allows the flavors to dance across the palate. -Ken Robertson, chief of judges at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
