Storm Haven Vineyard is the 107 acre home and heart of Synchromesh. With large elevation changes and varying geology, we are able to explore very different expressions of Riesling and Cabernet Franc from each block. Farmed without synthetics or chemicals and following a holistic approach, we strive to grow our vines within the existing ecosystem rather than manipulating it. All this is supported by a 70 sanctuary to protect the sensitive habitat that calls our property home.
The Storm Haven Label represents the pinnacle of wines from this property in a given year. Pretty violets, black cherry and cocoa dust. One of a kind Cabernet Franc and a very promising first glimpse into what the Storm Haven property can do with the variety. Only 20 cases made!
'This is the first release of the new Storm Haven wines for Synchromesh, coming off their home site, and the result of years of experimentation. From young vines home site, and a blend of clones 214 and 332 (the latter a sole rarity in the Okanagan), this was whole cluster for a week, then pressed off into tank where it remained until August 2020 when I tasted it, just bottled. This defines the Okanagan scrub, infused with wild plum, finely grippy tannins, white pepper, wild rose, and iris, all housed with whisper fine, and firm tannins, leading this slight wine to a lengthy finish. Loire-esque, at an impressive 10.6 degrees; serve with a chill. Quite unique for the Okanagan, and one to watch.' 90 points' - Treve Ring, Gismondi on Wine Aug 27, 2020
