Malbec / Petit Verdot 2020

The resulting red blend is ready to add intrigue to your dining table with fresh cherry, red currants, kirsch, spice, and floral notes. Its full body and powdery tannins make it fun to pair with savoury dishes, such as Korean BBQ or olive tapenade.

Best BC Syrah Platinum Medal

Syrah Family Collection 2020

A full and powerful Syrah with aromas of jammy dark cherry, blackberry, violets, and savoury black pepper. Red fruit, vanilla and butterscotch notes join on the palate, adding complexity.

The low yields and excellent fruit quality resulted in an exceptional 2020 vintage. The wines have intense flavour profiles, higher acidity and moderate alcohol levels. These attributes are great for pairing with food. We recommend it with Calabrian lamb chopsspaghetti alla Puttanescapork schnitzel with peppercorn sauce or Manchego cheese.

2020 Syrah was sourced from our Home Vineyard exclusively. All of our home vineyard is cared for under Gina’s watchful eye throughout the year. Grapes are hand-picked, then hand-sorted before a very gentle pressing. Aged in French oak barriques, 50% of which were new, for 15 months.
