Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Tucked behind the winery, the bowl-shaped Hidden Valley vineyard is a beautifully warm site that produces ripe fruit of deep flavour and rich tannin. Aromas of black raspberry, clove and licorice are echoed on the palate, finishing with a supple mouthfeel. So fun to taste and compare with our Gjoa's Vineyard Merlot and Dickinson Vineyard Merlot!

Winemaker Notes
Hand harvested and sorted was fermented from the very low-yielding (2.2 tons per acre) southwest facing block in Hidden Valley after a moderately warm, but long growing season. A 14 day cold soak, then controlled fermentation were followed by extended maceration (28 days total), malolactic fermentation in oak, and a further 12 months barrel maturation in French oak (28% new)
