 Overview

After a winter that seemed to never end, spring carried on the cool temperatures right through until May, giving bud-break a later start than normal. Cooler temperatures and above-average precipitation persisted through the early summer months delaying fruit maturity by several weeks. August brought warmer seasonal temperatures that held right into October. Although faced with a reduced crop from the harsh winter and a challenging growing season, as always, the vines found their balance and grape maturity commenced with the first harvest here on October 9th. The whites are showing concentrated flavors with bright tangy acids. The reds show classic cool-climate character with soft plush tannins and a balance of berry fruit and savory spice

Tasting Notes

Colour is deep ruby. Aromas of cherry, dark chocolate and mocha, with hints of strawberry, vanilla and barrel spice. The palette is soft and round with a sweet fruit core. Flavours of red berry fruit persist with subtle hints of tobacco and leather. Medium+ finish.
