An early spring and moderately warm summer, and blissfully smoke-free, allowed for very long hang time for the 2019 red grapes. Wine from an older planting of Malbec blends nicely with younger (13 year old) Merlot block.
Full-bodied with abundant dark fruit and spiced-mocha flavours.
This fruit was sourced from a well-established vineyard planted
high above Naramata village, just below a rock cliff - a warm spot
favoured by vines and bears alike. An average growing season, with consistent heat into the fall, created and preserved bright fruit aromas and flavours while ripening elegant tannins. Bottled under cap to ensure the integrity of freshness and flavour.
