Creekside Estate Winery
Unbroken Press Syrah VQA
Creekside Estate Winery opened in 1997 in small-town Jordan, Ontario. The Winery is run by a passionate (some say fanatical) group of industry veterans who have decades of experience.
The name here refers to the fact that, while Broken Press features a bit of co-fermented Viognier for complexity, the UNBroken is 100% Syrah, pure and proud from our Queenston Road Vineyard. What’s the diff? Without gentle, sweet Viognier to soothe its fevered brow, Syrah’s inherent brooding power rages unchecked, untamed and yes UNBroken.
The brawnier, bolder brother of our Broken Press Syrah, this full-bodied wine has a nose of black currant, raspberry, grilled meats, kirsch, pepper and a lifted floral note. Rich and weighty on the palate, with wild and integrated fruit, bramble and rousing spices to go with the firm tannin and delicate acidity.
100% Syrah sourced from the west block of our Queenston Road vineyard. 20 months in oak. 6 barrels were chosen for the final blend: 2 Hungarian, the other 4 French, one of which was new wood. Bottled August 10 2017.
