The depth of this wine was structured by the warm summer and wet autumn. This wine stays true to the Leaning Post style and terroir of Armbrust Vineyard demonstrates lots of earth, mushroom, and undergrowth on the nose which is complimented by blackberry and cherry fruit with some beautiful freshly picked lavender. In the mouth there is lots of beautiful beet, blackberry, kirsch, and cracked pepper. The finish is long and delectable. This wine will age well for the next 3-5 years. Try with brie, camembert, your favourite burger, or anything on your plate this thanksgiving.
This wine is from 3 different vineyards that were picked on October 21st, October 26th, and November 6th. Each vineyard was vinified separately. After a 4-day cold soak, fermentation occurred spontaneously in both small open top and concrete fermenters. All wines were hand punched-down twice a day for 3 weeks. After 3.5 weeks on skins, each wine was gently pressed and racked into neutral oak barrique and puncheon for aging where it underwent spontaneous malo-lactic fermentation. Each vineyard was aged separately in barrel for 10 months. All of the vineyards were blended together when they were racked out of barrel and held in tank before being bottled.
