Staff Pick Series: Andrew and the Lakeview Cellars Syrah
Each member of our retail team at Lakeview Wine Co. has picked a favourite wine from our extensive portfolio and will be sharing details with you about what makes this wine their go-to! This is Andrew, one of our wine experts here at Lakeview Wine Co., and his staff pick is our Lakeview Cellars Syrah.Characteristics:
This robust and intense Syrah displays notes of ripe dark fruits, black pepper, and spice. On the palate you will find complex notes of black cherry, leather, pepper, and a hint of mocha.
Try with stuffed veal topped with sautéed garlic and pancetta.
In the wise words of Andrew:
“The Lakeview Cellars Syrah is a delicious, full-bodied, dry red wine with a strong oak presence. Being from a cold climate region in Niagara, this Syrah is different from Syrah or Shiraz of warmer climate regions like Australia or South Africa. However, it does maintain some of the standard characteristics of dark berries, smoked meat, and a trademark black pepper finish. I love pairing this Syrah with grilled beef or pasta with ragu sauce, or simply enjoyed on its own. Enjoy!”
Lakeview Cellars Syrah is available exclusively online and in our retail store. Try our new 2017 vintage!
