Hillside Estate Syrah 2009 (British Columbia) Add to ...

  • Rating 90
  • Year 2009
  • Type Syrah
  • Price $30

On the site of a former apple orchard, this estate was transformed into a winery in the 1980s by Bohumir and Vera Klokocka, Czech immigrants who had fled communism. Now owned and managed by a new team of capitalists with extensive winemaking experience, it has been excelling with a variety of offerings, including this syrah. Full-bodied and juicy, the wine is delectably balanced, with succulent black-skinned fruit embraced by tobacco, cedar and lively acidity. Excellent for grilled lamb.
