2015 Syrah


Winemaking Notes:

The fruit was harvested in 2015 from Oliver, B.C from a vineyard located parallel between the Black Sage and the Golden Mile. This hand picked fruit from Oliver went through a 2nd hand sorting process when it arrived at the winery. After de-stemming the fruit, the grapes were sent directly to tanks for a 5 day cold soak to help extract colour from the grapes skins.

After the 5 day cold soak the grapes were warmed to temperatures ranging from 26-30 degrees to begin fermentation. All of the grapes used in this blend were fermented together in stainless steel tanks. The primary fermentation took nearly 4 weeks and a variety of different techniques were used for skin maceration. The combination of cap management techniques include pump overs and pulsair, and was applied to the fruit depending on the fermentation and ranged between 3-4 macerations per day.

After primary fermentation was complete the wines were sent to press to remove the skins and seeds from the finished wine. Once back into stainless steel tanks, the wine was inoculated with malo-lactic bacteria and allowed to settle for a month. After malo was complete, the wine was racked off of heavy lees and sent to barrels. This wine was aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 9 months.
