On Saturday, April 7th Helioterra Wines will be pouring our current release selections of Syrah at McMenamins Edgefield Winery at the Syrah Grand Tasting from 3:30 pm to 7:00 pm. The 17th Annual Celebration of Syrah is an event that showcases the wonderful varietal that is Syrah from producers all over Oregon and Washington. Proceeds from this yearly event go towards Salud!, a non-profit which helps with healthcare access to vineyard workers throughout the region.
This year Helioterra Wines will be pouring both the 2015 Helioterra Columbia Valley Oasis Syrah as well as the 2015 Helioterra Willamette Valley Dion Syrah. These are two fantastic wines from two very different growing regions. The Oasis Syrah is luxurious and not for the faint of heart! Notes of lakeside camping, dusty blueberry, split wood and coffee dance on the nose while aromas of leather and chocolate intrigue the palate. The Dion Syrah on the other hand is a true cool climate Syrah that distinguishes itself with layers of white peppercorn and clove along with a delicate floral nose. The palate stays firm with ripe tannin structure and Anne believes this is one of the most interesting wines she has ever made.
This event is sure to be filled with wonderful wines that go to promote a great cause and you won’t want to miss out! More information and tickets can be found at: https://www.mcmenamins.com/celebration-of-syrah
