Winemaker's Notes

100% Cabernet Franc

Aromas of black raspberry, plum, baked blueberry and elderberry, spiced by cinnamon and violet, invite the nose to a long, pensive draw.  
The mouthfeel is luscious and intense.  
Dark fruit flavours with cherry, raisin and cocoa translate to the palate, trailing to a toasty, spicy, herbal finish.

Picked at the Wismer Vineyard October 13th as grape sugars averaged 24.1° Brix.

Freshly picked grapes were destemmed before primary fermentation in two large oak cuves.  After, 12% of the wine drained to new French oak puncheons and the rest to more neutral (2nd – 6th use) French oak barriques.  The whole was blended back into mature barrels to age for an additional 3 months before bottling in December 2021.

At the time of bottling, alcohol measured 13.5%; Residual Sugar 0 g; Titratable Acidity 7.2 grams per litre; pH 3.45

Dry: 0 g residual sugar
