2017 Syrah

Vintage

Vineyard Designation
Phantom Creek Vineyard

Opulent and elegant, big yet refined, this Syrah brings ripe, bright fruits on the palate. These rows of vines in the Phantom Creek Vineyard are perfectly protected from heavy winds, keeping the site warmer, longer. The increased sunlight and warmth bring ripeness which is evident in the plush and robust mouthfeel.

Winemaker Notes
2017 growing season got off to a slow start with bud break occurring nearly two weeks later than average. But this was followed by a hot and dry summer that really allowed the grapes to fully ripen. This was also a year of reduced yields however, it resulted in small, concentrated berries that produced wines of pronounced depth and intensity.
Vineyard Notes
Established by pioneering viticulturist Richard Cleave in 1996, Phantom Creek Vineyard is located on the lower terrace of the Black Sage Bench just above the warm valley floor. The tiny, seven-acre parcel is planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon. Since the early 2000s, fruit from the property has been used for single vineyard bottlings, a tradition we proudly honour and continue today at the winery.
