2021 Carbonic SyrahRed Wine
Whole berry fermented with no additives, filtration or fining, the Maverick Estate Winery Carbonic Syrah is an Okanagan interpretation of carbonic macerated syrah reminiscent of a high-quality Beaujolais.
The 2021 Carbonic Syrah is almost black and opaque in colour. The nose has blueberry jam, black licorice and loads of brambly fruit. The palate has a nice sweet dark fruit attack and then a tart licorice mid-palate. This wine is more ‘serious’ than the 2020 Carbonic Syrah as it is sourced from a different vineyard with lower yields. Finishes with a rich cassis and chocolate note, despite not seeing any oak.
