Tasting Notes

Syrah is our flagship grape at Creekside and this wine continues to over-deliver and garner awards year after year, including a Platinum for its predecessor at the National Wine Awards. The combination of attentive growers, warm vineyard sites and our traditional winemaking techniques combine to make this wine special. Always elegant, always charming, always tasty.

Technical Notes

Syrah grapes were harvested from select blocks in Niagara vineyards throughout the month of October. All individual vineyards were fermented separately in stainless steel tanks or small batch one tonne fruit bins. Malolactic fermentation took place in oak barrel where the wine was aged for 11 months. 42% American, 58% French with 20% being new oak.

Awards

Platinum Medal - National Wine Awards

Reviews

“Here's a terrific little syrah from Creekside, all zest and white pepper in the genuine cool climate idiom, with saliva-inducing acids and light dusty tannins. This is the sort of wine I could sip all night, with a light chill. A great BBQ/ porch/ deck/ dock/ patio/ terrace wine, unless of course you're elsewhere, in which case it'll be fine, too.” 88pts - John Szabo, WineAlign.com
