Michaela Morris violette 19

Michaela Morris (MW candidate and Decanter Magazine writer) had Syrah Cuvee Violette as one of her top 10 wines of the year in 2022.

Le Vieux Pin crafts three Syrahs each highlighting a different aspect of the grape โ€“ Cuvรฉe Violette an ode to the grapeโ€™s elegant, floral side. It is also consistently one of BCโ€™s best-value Syrahs. Winemaker Severine Pinte ferments at low temperatures for a gentle extraction and the wine ages in a combination of stainless steel, concrete and French oak allowing the brightness and freshness of plum and raspberry fruit to take centre stage. Nuanced by herbs and violet and framed with fine tannins, the 2019 is a gorgeous mid-weight charmer.
