Shipped and sold by River Stone Estate Winery

2022 Okanagan Valley 750 mL, 13% ALC/VOL

This medium bodied red wine is a beautiful inky dark violet color and has bold spice overriding ripe fruit flavours and concentrated textures from mature tannins representative of the great growing season. This wine is presently showing flavours reminiscent of blackberry, cherry, raspberry, with hints of, cloves, cinnamon, tobacco, coffee, and nuances of smoky, toasted French oak. This wine has a medium acidity that is balanced and mouthwatering, creating freshness on the pallet. Tannins are moderate and velvety giving a long lasting finish that will further soften with time.

This wine will age nicely 7-10 years.

Winemaker Notes: All grapes were hand-picked, sorted and gently destemmed. Approximately 80% of the fruit was left whole berry, uncrushed. The grapes were cold soaked between 3-5 days and then fermented in both stainless steel tanks (2200 and 2850 litre) and small fermentation totes to maximize skin to juice contact. After fermentation was complete the wine was pressed and transferred to tanks to settle, then to barrels where malolactic fermentation was completed. Wine was aged in French oak barrels (33% new) for approximately 14 months. Following aging, final filtering, and bottling, resulted in the 2022 Malbec.
