Our Red Wines

The 2019 vintage was cooler again than 2018 and has yielded the most achitypal cool climate syrah we have ever produced at Nichol. On the tighter more delineated side and even less opulent. The aromatics this year are high toned and delineated and speak to the nuance and sophistication of fruit this vintage has given us. Look for pretty red berries, lilacs and poutpourri, licorice, and the typical game and leather notes we usually see but with greater lift and finesse Again a crunchy intensity and persistence on the palate that will really reward cellaring. Dont let the delicay of this vintage fool you, these wines are built for the cellar. We are very excited. Please decant.

Vibrant ruby. Sweet herbs, fresh berries, some soil and leather and more red tree fruit dominate the nose. Medium bodied with savoury/sweet red fruits and herbs on the palate. Grippy tannins and fresh acidity. This is the brightest and most fruit driven version of our Pinot Noir we have grown in some time and will provide more immediate pleasure than previous vintages. Now – 2026.

Dark ruby. Youthful, vibrant. Garrigue, dark red fruits, soil and dill on the nose. Crunchy, packed palate of sage, iron and savoury berries. The tannins are firm and savoury in 2018 - this will benifit greatly from a few years in the cellar. This is ripe Cabernet Franc that never forgets it is still varietal Cabernet Franc. Now – 2026+.

Vineyard: 13 rows planted in 1989 on granite bedrock. 100% Naramata Village.

Wine Making: Hand-picked on October 20th 2018. De-stemmed in to open top fermenters. Basket pressed with malolactic taking place in neutral French barrique. Raised in neutral (3-6 years old) French oak barrels for 12 months. Racked twice and bottled unfined and unfiltered in March 2020.

Vibrant ruby in colour. High toned aromatics of lilacs and fennel fronds with a touch of white pepper. Medium bodied and focused palate of ripe red berry fruits, sweet herbs and pepper. This is a fine, detailed version of our young vines that is easy to drink but has intense, crunchy persistence on the palate. Easy to drink now but we see this rewarding at 5 to 8 years in the cellar. Drink Now - 2030
