Sip Sip Syrah
In store 3:30-6:30pm
Monster Syrah 2016
Crimson red in the glass.
Rich fruit aromas with subtle note of caramel.
Dark berry and herb flavours up front with hints of dark chocolate and cedar.
See Ya Later Ranch Rover 2015
Lots of ripe red fruit and intense dark berries with hints of baking spices and course ground black pepper notes. The palate is rich and full with firm tannins alongside flavours of creamy cassis, ripe plums, spiced rum cake, and hints of pepper. The finish is long with the flavours lingering on the palate long after the last sip.
Gold Hill Syrah 2013
This full-bodied Syrah is a rich and complex red wine with nuances of lavender, spice, anise and vanilla and delicate hints of raspberry, cherry and pepper notes. Pairs well with grilled meats or medium-rare cuts, including beef, lamb, ribs or duck, as well as goat cheese and sheep cheese. Aged in French Oak barrels for 18 months.
Narrative Syrah 2016
Using grapes sourced from the Black Sage Bench, and in keeping with our philosophy of less is more, this Syrah was gently destemmed with 25% whole cluster into concrete tanks for fermentation and gaining. No oak was used allowing the rich, black fruit, pepper and a barnyard savouriness to shine through.
An intense fruit sweetness of plums, chocolate and spice leads to a long and supple finished framed by ripe and gentle tannins.
