Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A robust wine, with an intense dark berry flavour. Jammy, spicy mid palate with a long vanilla and black chocolate finish.
Vineyard Notes
Three Boys is our estate vineyard on the Black Sage Bench where the east-west orientation and famous sandy soil provide for maximum sun exposure and great drainage. Our Syrah is planted 8 x 3 feet, where we harvest less grapes per vine but of superior quality.
Winemaker Notes
Grapes were hand harvested and hand sorted followed by the stemmed whole berries and free run juice being transferred to fermenting tanks for a five day cold soak, twice daily pump over. Fermentation was maintained at a consistent 26 degrees.
Food Pairing Notes
Serve with prime rib, tenderloin or filet, game meats, foie gras and strong cheese.

what could you say. I live in Kelowna and are down in Oliver for business three times a week. the Syrah has always been my favourite. I know that its won 2 lieutenant Governors awards. I wouldn't be surprised if this one wins as well I think this vintage is their best vintage ever

best Syrah I have ever had. I will always be loyal to Desert Hills for the best BC wines. I would highly recommend them, not only the wine, but the great service!
