Winemaker Notes
The long moderate 2016 summer afforded extended hang-time to the three Naramata Bench vineyards that produced the fruit for this wine. After 6 to 12 day cold-soaks, each batch was fermented and given 25 day total skin contact giving us wine with bright intense flavours. 13 months barrel maturation in small French oak resulted in an elegant tannin structure.
