Winespeak - Young & Wyse Shiraz 2008

What – Shiraz 2008 Where – Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley Why – This new Okanagan winery is also one of the most anticipated to come down the stretch in some time. And it’s not just the catchy name and striking label – it’s the parentage behind the product. Winemaker Stephen Wyse hails from legendary Burrowing Owl, where he’s been crafting his family’s cult wines for the past decade. Together with his partner, Michelle Young, Stephen is out to add another chapter to the Wyse wine dynasty with the launch of his handcrafted Young & Wyse. This Shiraz is evidence that this young winery is wise beyond its years. Rich dark berry, plum and wild cherry aromas lead to a full palate of dark chocolate, spice, berry, savoury meat and black pepper. Plush tannins and a lengthy cocoa-coffee finish make for satisfying drinking now – though there’s enough stuffing to warrant laying down for a couple of years. Fantastic value for price – especially for a big BC red. When – Since it’s already BBQ weather in most of BC, try with grilled pork or beef with a cocoa rub. How (much) – $23

Winespeak of the Week – Young & Wyse released their inaugural wines, this Shiraz and a Merlot, late last year. Watch for Viognier, Gewürztraminer, Malbec and Zinfandel to follow. Gusty – I love it – and I can’t wait!
