Reviews

Here's a terrific little syrah from Creekside, all zest and white pepper in the genuine cool climate idiom, with saliva-inducing acids and light dusty tannins. This is the sort of wine I could sip all night, with a light chill. A great BBQ/ porch/ deck/ dock/ patio/ terrace wine, unless of course you're elsewhere, in which case it'll be fine, too.” 88pts - John Szabo, WineAlign.com 117 Rob Power Syrah is our flagship grape at Creekside and this wine continues to over-deliver and garner awards year after year, including a Platinum for its predecessor at the National Wine Awards. The combination of attentive growers, warm vineyard sites and our traditional winemaking techniques combine to make this wine special. Always elegant, always charming, always tasty. Syrah grapes were harvested from select blocks in Niagara vineyards throughout the month of October. All individual vineyards were fermented separately in stainless steel tanks or small batch one tonne fruit bins. Malolactic fermentation took place in oak barrel where the wine was aged for 11 months. 42% American, 58% French with 20% being new oak. www.creeksidewine.com Creekside Estate Winery, a 15-acre vineyard and winery on Fourth Avenue near Jordan, ON, is a tuned-in wine brand that has been doing its premium thing on the Niagara Peninsula since 1997. They also own 50-acres on Queenstown Road, St David's Bench, where many of their award winning reds “ including their infamous Broken Press "“ are crafted. The Creekside Cru have been pioneers in the plantings of Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah, which at one point in time were considered viticulturally off-kilter for the region. Our companies share the same passion and dedication to the Ontario industry. We know in our hearts and minds it is a great place to make wine!
