Le Vieux Pin’s 2009 Equinoxe Syrah steals the show at the Judgement of Montreal

Its official; the world’s best syrah-based wine hails from our own backyard – Le Vieux Pin, just outside Oliver in the South Okanagan – according to an esteemed panel during the Judgement of Montreal Soirée des Connaisseurs 2012 – Syrah vs Syrah which happened Wednesday, October 10th.

Clinching the top spot on a list which features some of the world’s most celebrated winemakers from California and France’s Rhone Valley, Le Vieux Pin’s Equinoxe Syrah 2009 shone during the second edition of this fierce competition pitting old world and new world wines against each other in a blind taste test. Judges claimed that Le Vieux Pin’s Equinoxe Syrah 2009 was truly characteristic of an Old World wine, with a nose remarkably similar to wines of the Rhone Valley with pepper, violet and blackcurrant, while keeping a well balanced, floral nature with minimal sugar content.
