Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Bright and full of raspberry and cherry, with a lingering finish and chewy tannins.
Vineyard Notes
A very wet and cold spring gave way to summer weather in June with limited precipitation and vigorous growth. Although 2017 was the worst wildfire season on record for BC, the fires were not nearby. Smoke blanketed the sun coverage, which had a positive impact by allowing a longer period for flavour development.
Winemaker Notes
Almost always our last grapes to come in for the year, they were de-stemmed and lightly crushed into different tanks in order to keep each vineyard block isolated until the final blending. Pressed directly to a mixture of French and American barrels, these wines spent 15 months in oak, before being blended together prior to bottling in spring of 2019.
