Poplar Grove Winery 2007 Syrah - 90+pts
Availability: Direct from winery here. VQA stores
Date Tasted: September 22nd, 2010
Tasting Notes: The fruit for this beautiful Syrah came from a Skaha Lake vineyard with excellent sun exposure. The resulting wine, handled expertly by winemaker Ian Sutherland, is fully ripe and bursting with concentrated red and dark fruit flavours and aromas. This is a serious Syrah, dark and brooding, with a good expression of terroir and spicy pepper notes. Oak treatment enhances the nose and palate without overshadowing the fruit characters.
Winner of a 2010 Lieutenant Governor Award of Excellence - well deserved. Enjoy on its own or with grilled meats. Drink now through 2014.
