Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Gjoas vineyard, situated just below our winery, was established 17 years ago. These mature vines produce fruit which stands out with deep plum and mocha aromas and a savoury note to the palate, lending sophistication to the finish. So fun to taste and compare with our Dickinson Vineyard Merlot!
Production Notes
Hand harvested and sorted fruit was sourced from the more than 17 year old vines of Gjoa’s vineyard, just across the road from our own Hidden Valley Vineyard. Low yield and long hang time (harvested November 6th) resulted in richly concentrated fruit. Controlled fermentation was followed by extended maceration, malo-lactic fermentation in oak, and a further 13 months barrel maturation in new (14%) American and older French oak. -Taxes will be added upon check-out.
