Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2013 vintage starts out with a beautiful combination of mulberry, tobacco, plum and dark chocolate, then develops into a more elegant red fruit and cassis. Fruit comes beautifully to the palate and integrates with mineral undertones that present in a very elegant finish. Unrestrained fruit with reined-in power, textured, composed and seamless in style.
Winemaker Notes
The 2013 growing season had two distinctly different chapters. An unpredictable cold and wet spell late in September had us change gears and put our patience and nerve to the ultimate test. The season started with normal bud-break in the middle of April. Above average June temperatures led to earlier veraison. The grapes picked before the rain showed intense fruit flavors associated with a hot and dry ripening season. The second chapter of 2013 season was a nerve-racking waiting game, with cool raining weather slowing ripening and also bringing the added concern of rot. A long and sunny patch late in October saved the day and, that lucky bunches that enjoyed this weather on the vine, achieved full phenolic ripeness.
Production
Grapes are hand-picked into small 30 pound trays. Cooled to 5-8 degrees Celsius before being whole bunch pressed, non destemmed. After gentle foot stomping, co-fermented in 3400 litre wooden vat, then aged in older oak for 18 months.
Other Notes
35% Syrah, 25% Cabernet Franc, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot
