2013 Syrah

Savoury, spicy, elegant and lingering with notes of smoky bacon, blackberry, black plum.  Warm spice aromas meet the nose on this medium-to full-bodied dark-fruit flavoured wine. This elegant Syrah spent 12 months in French and American oak barrels creating beautiful, soft tannins, good structure, and a long finish. Our Syrah pairs perfectly with roast pork, spice rubbed chicken, or grilled meat.

Fewer than two cases of this Double Gold Medal Syrah remain. It’s owner/winemaker Gina’s favourite Syrah vintage, so you might want to get some before she beats you to it.

2014 Syrah

C’est Syrah or Shiraz? Our fruit-forward, bold, full-bodied red was aged in select French and American oak. It offers aromas of fresh jam, savoury spice with white pepper notes, black raspberries, and smoke. The flavours of white pepper, sage, blueberry, and blackberry make this wine a perfect complement to wild game such as venison, buffalo burgers, lamb, rich pasta, and slow-roasted or barbecued pork.

All our Syrah is grown in a single vineyard on our home estate, picked by hand, and carefully crafted with love. It is made in small lots, only 150 cases were produced, and fewer than 30 remain.

Great aging potential – enjoy through 2026. Unfiltered, will contain sediment.

2014 Petit Verdot

A True Southern Beauty.  This rare Proprietor’s Reserve Petit Verdot is dark and spicy with great aging ability, thanks to aging in French oak.  She is elegant and perfumed, with notes of boysenberry, lilac, and violet.
