2015 Syrah Magnum

2015 Syrah Magnum

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.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine is very fruit forward on the nose, with aromas of black cherry and plum, along with rose petals and sage. Blackcurrant is evident on the palate, along with coffee, chocolate, spice and vanilla. This is a full-bodied Pinot Noir, with soft silky tannins.

Vineyard Notes
The grapes for this wine came from the Tightrope Vineyard and the adjacent Hermitage Vineyard. Extensive work and done in both vineyards to make this wine. Fruit is dropped to one cluster per shoot and the shoulders are removed. Both shoots and leaves are thinned to ensure good light penetration and even ripening. The irrigation is strategically managed to control canopy growth, berry size, and guaranteeing good ripening of grapes.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were handpicked and then processed immediately. The grapes were de-stemmed, but not crushed, directly into small half ton fermenters where they were cold soaked for five days, before a wild ferment commenced. In total the grapes spent about 21 days on skins before being processed. The wine was aged in French Oak, 30% new, for 10 months before being bottled.
