Harmonious, elegant, classic.
A boutique winery located just outside of Penticton, Pentage sits on 35-acres overlooking Skaha Lake and grows an impressive 19 varieties in their Vista Ridge and Dirty Dozen Vineyards. Production is capped at 5000 cases per year.
With nearly six years of age already, this 2016 Syrah was fermented in four different batches, using four different hand selected yeasts then matured for 18 months in 70% French and 30% American oak; 30% of the barrels were new oak and the balance was in 2-4 years old barriques.
It suggests wild berries and prune plums, smoked paprika, dark cocoa, salted licorice and peppery spice flavours. It is fresh, has a silky texture and savoury undertones. Elegant with classic styling, it trails spice, vanilla, black fruit and herbal flavours.
