Description

Handpicked on 22.10.2017 from a single vineyard on the Naramata Bench, the wine underwent a wild ferment and full malolactic fermentation before resting in two neutral French oak barrels for 14 months.

Ripe black cherry mingles with perfumed floral notes and subtle spice. The palate offers an elegant mid-palate weight and supple finish.
