Winestyr Review

There are two reasons why this iconic Syrah from Broc Cellars has us so excited. First, library releases from our wineries are always such a special treat and a chance to try the wine in the form the winemaker could only imagine when harvest began. Second, Philary Vineyard fell victim to the region's terrible wild fires in 2017 and burned down, meaning no more wines will be coming from this site for a very long time.

What We Love

  • Library release
  • Very limited release

Trying this wine is like tasting history...and history is delicious.

Experience

At Broc Cellars, all of our wines are made using spontaneous fermentation, a process that means we only use native yeasts and bacteria that exist on the grapes in order to make wine. This is unlike many of the wines you will see in grocery stores or on wine shop shelves and in restaurants. We don’t add anything – this includes nutrients, yeast, bacteria, enzymes, tannins or other popular fermentation agents. Sulphur is a naturally occurring element in all wine, the amount found can vary. We add little to no S02, depending on the wine and style.
