Le Vieux Pin, Equinoxe, Syrah, 2014, Okanagan Valley, Canada

About this wine

Aged in French oak for 19 months before bottling (34% new). This Canadian Syrah manages to combine full-throttle intensity with impressive elegance.

'Équinoxe: equal day, equal night. Equal heat of the day, equal cold of the night. Equal new world, equal old world.

The 2013 Equinoxe Syrah is comprised of fruit grown in various sub appellations in the South Okanagan Valley: The golden mile, Black sage bench and Osoyoos lake district. A traditionally made Syrah in the sense that the sum is considered greater than the parts (lieux-dits trumping single cru ala Chez Jamet, JL Chave, Clape). The resulting effort is a very complex wine with medium+ garnet colour that perfectly and effortlessly combines elements of both old world and new world styles. This monumental wine is at the same time feminine and masculine. It has grace and power, spice and florals, game and savoury notes. Yin and yang come together to showcase a perfectly balanced Syrah'.
