Le Vieux Pin Equinox Syrah 2017


The 2017 Équinoxe Syrah is comprised of fruit grown in multiple plots throughout the South Okanagan Valley. A very complex wine with dark garnet colour that perfectly and effortlessly combines elements of both the old world and the new world styles. This monumental wine is at the same time feminine and masculine. It has grace and power, spice and florals, gamy and savoury notes. Yin and yang come together to showcase a perfectly balanced Syrah. 2017 vintage is more readily drinkable than the last few releases, thanks to the nature of the growing season. We plan on drinking our 2017 before 2014-2016 vintages.

Winery Profile:
Named for the solitary majestic old growth pine of their Oliver estate, Le Vieux Pin sits perched amidst the famed vineyards of the Black Sage Bench: Canada’s sole pocket desert, located in the South of British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. Since releasing their first vintage in 2005, Le Vieux Pin has captured the essence of traditional French winemaking, along with the bold New World character distinct to the region. Considered by the national wine industry to be a leading Syrah producer, the winery uses low input viticulture and non-interventionist winemaking to make exclusive vintages that carry with them a sense of time and place. These fine wines can be savoured nationwide and internationally, at select culinary hot spots, gastronomical institutions and fine wine merchants. The pine tree stands alone.
