Our first-ever Syrah, this unique wine is featured as part of the acclaimed “Grower’s Series.” This exclusive and limited-production Syrah is an opportunity to see a whole new side of Clos du Soleil.

Eyes

t is a deep, brilliant purple-red in the glass.

Nose

The perfumed nose of this wine envelops the taster with aromas of freshly crushed
raspberries and black currants.

Mouth

On the palate, a bright and fresh acidity is met with these same flavours of fresh wild raspberries and is accented with notes of blackcurrant, cola, and a hint of cloves. Soft and supple in the mouth, with very fine tannins.

Winemaking Notes

Hand-harvested at peak maturity, the grapes for this wine were very gently crushed and then fermented in smallest open top fermenters for a full month, with daily manual punchdowns before pressing. It was aged for 16 months in French oak barrels. As for all of our wines, the focus was on attention to detail, minimal interventions, and the expression of terroir. The wine was bottled under screw cap to maximize retention of this beautifully aromatic expression of Similkameen Valley Syrah.
