Inky Black in colour, this wine has a staggeringly complex array of aromas from boysenberry, black cherry, and cassis through to graphite, iodine and a mélange of herbs. In searching for descriptors, it is sometimes difficult other than to say it is a quintessential expression of Okanagan Malbec, which itself is unique in the wine world.
Winemakers Notes: The 2011 growing season got off to a slow start, and showed near record low growing degree days. However, the saving grace was a warm, long fall allowed for fantastic flavour development.
The wine was kept on skins for 14 days before being pressed off and transferred into French Oak barriques. 25% new French oak, tightest grain, 20 months.
