2014Iconoclast Syrah

Queenston Road Vineyard

VQA Niagara Peninsula
Red wine 750ml
12.5% alc./vol

93% Syrah, 7% Viognier, all sourced from our Queenston Road vineyard, picked October 30 2014. Partially-pressed Viognier skins co--fermented with Syrah in small batches for extraction of flavour. Aged 21 months in older French oak barriques. Bottled August 16 2016. Black pepper, black cherries and a bit of sweet baking spice on the nose. Soft, rounded tannins make a comfy backrest for red fruit on the palate. Gracefully subtle acid tension will dance you to the end of love (Leonard, you will be missed…)

Wow graphite minerality! Dusty, juicy and dry, this Syrah is one to hold close and shows complexity. Great value! Aged 20 months in French oak barrels. Ripe Field strawberry, black currant, a dash of ground white peppercorn. Showing well balanced, medium tannins, medium acidity, medium plus fruit. Pairs well with patio fare, BBQ, roasted chicken or braised lamb. Tasted 2014 in March 2017. 90 points. BespokeTastings
