Barrel 42 Custom Winecraft and Cliff Creek Cellars have collaborated on this beautiful barrel of 2020 Syrah. The team at Barrel 42 has crafted the wine from fruit donated by Cliff Creek Cellars. This is an OWE exclusive lot, blended to show off the beautiful Syrah that 2020 gave us. (Yes, 2020 gave us a lot of terrible things, but thankfully it also gave us some beautiful Syrah despite the difficult year). The Cliff Creek Cellars site is a warm one, which gave us ripe fruit and a big, powerful wine that has been framed with elegant French Oak. This wine is expected to be bottled in June 2022, after 21 months in oak, and will be best with an additional ageing of 12+ months in bottle.
