2012 Gjoa Vineyard Merlot

Gjoa’s 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!

Winemaker 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. A summer of consistent heat and long hang time (harvested October 24th) resulted in richly concentrated fruit. A 6 day cold soak and controlled fermentation were followed by extended maceration--24 days on skins, malo-lactic fermentation in oak, and a further 12 months barrel maturation in new (13%) and older French oak.
