Our Syrah fruit comes from our Osoyoos and Oliver vineyards. This allows for different ripening times and different flavours from the clones and soil types. We harvested the Syrah on two different dates. The first picking was in late September to allow a co-ferment with Viognier and a small portion of Roussanne, while the remainder was picked early October.
The first pick of fruit was co-fermented with Viognier and Roussanne. The second pick was only Syrah. Both intakes underwent malolactic fermentation and were aged in barrel for 15 months. We used a mix of French, American and Eastern European Oak. The wines were then removed from barrel and blending before bottling.
