  • Dried herb
  • Peppery & smoky
  • Supple texture

"Good typicality – violet and blackberry with plush notes. Nice expression of Syrah, layered and structured tannins. On the sweet side but packed full of fruit and spice. Well made, very commercial and good value" Jancis Robinson, Jun 2020

Elegant smoky tones lead to notes of currant, dried herbs and hints of pepper. The supple texture is complemented by flavors of cedar and dark fruits.

Fruit for the Grand Estates Syrah was harvested from premier vineyard sites throughout the Columbia Valley including the Wahluke Slope and Horse Heaven Hills. Hot summer days and warm evenings complement the gravel and silty loam soils of this low yielding vineyard site. Irrigation to the vines was applied judiciously to create concentrated varietal expression.

Grapes were destemmed, crushed and then co-fermented on the skins with small amounts of Viognier grapes for 6-10 days. A twice-daily pumpover regime gently extracted color,
aromas and flavors. The wine aged for approximately 14 months in older and new oak barrels, both French and American.

Food Pairing: This wine matches beautifully with pork tenderloin, grilled salmon and soft cheeses.

Excellent wine for $20. In another league compared to your typical Aussie Syrah at this price.
