Wines / Reserve & Exclusive / The Boswell Syrah

The Boswell Syrah

The Boswell is part of our Collector Series. Each of these wines is hand-crafted to the highest standards, in limited quantities which are only available at the estate.

Our parents Dick Stewart and Rosemary (Boswell) Stewart built the foundations of Quails’ Gate Winery. As the matriarch of the Stewart family, Rosemary inspired the family value of making others feel welcome and raised her children to recognize the importance of being good hosts. The Boswell Syrah is a tribute to our mother’s maiden name and the caring values she instilled in our family business.

Tasting & Pairing

The nose of this wine opens with classic Syrah notes of bramble, white and black pepper and violet, developing into black olive, plum, black currant, cocoa, blueberry and cedar. On the palate this wine makes a soft entry which then opens into a velvety, round mid-mouthfeel with nice oak integration, elegant tannins and a silky finish.

This decadent and spicy Syrah matches up with grilled or braised game meats such as lamb and venison or with sharp cheddars and blue-veined cheeses. Decant the wine for an hour or two to enhance your enjoyment.

Winemaking

100% hand-harvested Syrah from estate grown fruit in West Kelowna. The destemmed whole berries were pumped over for over 3 weeks in the fermentation tank. To elevate the elegance of the wine without overpowering its terrior of origin, the wine was aged in 75% new 350L and 500L French oak barrels.

Enjoy now and through 2029.
