Our 2013 Merlot is an example of the best expressions one can achieve in Okanagan vineyards. Merlot does very well in the south Okanagan, expressing excellent structure from phenologically developed tannins with bright acidity. This wine is aromatic with sage and lily notes with a palate of plush, fine tannins and a lengthy finish of tobacco leaf and superb balance. Aged for 18 months in barrel and then bottle-aged for another 5 years, this wine is ready to drink. Plush and luxurious, enjoy now or cellar until 2033.
Our Syrah is clone 7 on 3309 rootstock, producing fruit with great aromatic profile and elegant tannins. It was hand-picked in October, and hand-sorted in the vineyard to remove any damaged berries or non-grape material. Viognier was picked from an adjoining block and mixed with the syrah at the crush pad, where it was destemmed, and then partially crushed. The syrah and viognier
must was allowed to slowly warm up, while cold soaking, allowing wild flora to start co-fermentation on the surface of the must. At 18ºC, the must was inoculated and fermented between 26 and 28 C. Daily pump-overs allowed full development of the tannins. Before the ferment finished to dry, the young wine was transferred to 40% new oak barrel where it aged a further 18 months.
A medium to full-bodied red wine with nice cocoa, blackcurrant, herbaceous, and spicy notes with subtle hints of anise, pepper, and a lingering minerality. Tannins are soft yet inviting and will pair well with lighter cuts of meat such as pork or duck and soft cheeses like well-aged cheddar and aged asiago. This has been in French Oak barrels for 12 months.
