Tightrope Winery 2015 Syrah (Shiraz)

On the nose this wine has aromas of violets, white pepper, dark cherry and plum. The palate has flavours of blackberry, prune and mocha, balanced out with soft silky tannins. All the grapes for this Syrah were sourced exclusively from the Naramata Bench. It was also co-fermented with Viognier, which accounts for its deep colour and floral hints on the nose. This wine was fermented in small lots, of approximately 1 ton each and was cold soaked for 5 days, before fermentation was begun. The wine was barrel aged for 10 months, in mostly French oak, with a small percentage of American oak, for added complexity.

4 out of 5 starsReviewed on November 23, 2017

A really pretty nod to Northern Rhone.  The tiny bit of Viognier gives it a lift and some floral aromatics, while on the palate it shows some restraint. You'd honestly never know it was over 14% alcohol. A hint of smoke, lots of juicy dark fruit without being over extracted.  Very tasty.
