Narrative Red, 2020

2020 Okanagan Valley 750 mL, 12.5% ALC/VOL
  • Cabernet Franc
  • Gamay
  • Merlot

Wine Notes: A red wine made from Gamay grapes from cool northern mountainside sites combined with Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes grown in the southern valley where the heat is intense. The grapes were fermented and age using state of the art concrete tanks and traditional open top stainless vessels allowing the varieties to be showcased without the influence of oak flavour. The results are an outstanding representation of the Okanagan; a juicy, lush, and rich wine with chocolate and herbal aromas.

Narrative wines tell the story of the Okanagan offering wines made from unique vineyards sites from the cooler zone in the north to the heat belt in the south. The region is greatly influenced by a 100 km chain of lakes and a range of soils established by retreating ice masses over 9,000 years ago. This wine is a hallmark example of the region.
