Creekside Broken Press Reserve Syrah 2016

Canada, Ontario
93 WA
94 WA

The brawnier, bolder brother of our Broken Press Syrah, this full-bodied wine has a nose of black currant, raspberry, grilled meats, kirsch, pepper and a lifted floral note. Rich and weighty on the palate, with wild and integrated fruit, bramble and rousing spices to go with the firm tannin and delicate acidity.

Pairing

Think about Middle-Eastern inspired lamb dishes. We love a good lamb shawarma, smothered with those iconic Middle-Eastern spices served with a dollop of labneh and a sprinkle of freshly-chopped mint.

John Szabo, MS  2016 is another terrific vintage for the 'Broken Press', Creekside's, and indeed Ontario's, top syrah year after year since inception. The deep purple-red colour leads into an expansive nose of ripe black and red fruit, cold charcoal, pine needle, vanilla and other baking spices, still very youthful and a long way from a complete and evolved expression. The palate is mouth-coating, dense and rich, especially fleshy and ripe in this warm vintage, with abundant tannins well-coated in fruit extract and balanced acids. Very good to excellent length. Excellent wine indeed, best after 2022, or hold into the early '30s

Michael Godel  Good years have got behind this syrah with a touch of viognier so that five-plus in there’s an open window through which to find the heart of this wine. A democratic vintage, fruit at peak, elongated and built to last, last longer than anyone who knows not what capability is in store for this wine. The tannins are just beginning to wane and with great acumen they have melted into the karst of what is truly a special BP vintage. A minimum five years remains and quite possibly 10. Drink 2022-2028. Tasted April 2022.

Producer Description

Creekside Estate Winery opened in 1997 in small-town Jordan, Ontario.  The Winery is run by a passionate (some say fanatical) group of industry veterans who have decades of experience in their respective fields. The team of self-described cork dorks love what they do, and have fun doing it. 

Early on the darlings of the Creekside portfolio were, like the people who created them, a little outside of the mainstream fold; Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah are the signature wines.  Creekside has also developed a cult following for its Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon blend and Ontario’s award winning Broken Press Syrah.

Despite being considered viticulturally off-kilter for the region these 2 grapes showed promise and the early successes spurred further investment in the vineyard and cellar.
