The newest addition to our single vineyard series.  En route to Naramata, the stunning Dickinson vineyard is on a sun-drenched bench above the lake. This stylish wine shows dark fruits, fine cocoa and pipe tobacco followed by silky fine-grained tannins. So fun to taste and compare with our Gjoa’s Vineyard Merlot!

Winemaker Notes
Hand harvested and sorted fruit was given a 13 day cold soak to extract the ripe fruit flavours created by a long summer of moderate heat. Controlled fermentation was followed by extended maceration for a total skin contact time of 31 days, malo-lactic fermentation in oak, and a further 14 months barrel maturation in new (28%) French and older French and American oak.
