97% Syrah, 3% Viognier, all sourced from our Queenston Road vineyard. Viognier skins co-fermented with Syrah in tank and 1-tonne bins. 20 months in French oak. Bottled August 10. 2017.
Broken Press is one of Creekside’s most revered bottlings. Because of that reputation, we are very protective of our flagship product line, and aren’t afraid to declassify and skip a vintage if the wine doesn’t have the stuffing.
Meaty, (beefy, big and bouncy?) foods seem appropriate, but it is important to point out that Rob’s sister pairs BP Syrah with weighty, savoury vegan cuisine and has proved that you can happily skip the trip to the butcher shop. And the wine’s acidity makes it more delicate than you might think, so feel free to lighten up.
