Tasting Notes

The 2014 season presented the ideal profile for the production of intensely aromatic and concentrated wines for both whites and reds. The dry and warm spring favored blossoming, and exceptional levels of heat during summer time provided for an even ripening. Finally, the beautiful late season gave us time to pick the grapes at will, when they had reached our optimum standards of maturity.

The grapes were harvested by hand from Burrowing Owl’s Vineyards in Osoyoos on October 24th. They were destemmed and gently crushed before being gravity fed into stainless tanks to allow for skin maceration and alcoholic fermentation (10 days). Both “free run” and pressed wine were then moved into barrels for the malolactic fermentation followed by ageing (18 months). The selection of barrels helped round out the tannins and contributed to complex savoury, toasted and spicy notes. After the blending of the barrels, the wine was bottled unfiltered and left to mature in bottle until its release.
