Winemaker's Notes

100% Cabernet Franc

This darkly ruby-hued wine casts aromas of blueberry, raspberry and marigold with an oregano spice undertone.  Flavours contrive tart cherry, cranberry and plum, with subtle quince and cocoa holding the finish.

Picked at the “Cascade” Vineyard (formerly named Wismer) October 21st as grape sugars averaged 22° Brix.

Freshly-picked grapes were destemmed for primary and full malolactic fermentation.  The wine settled and matured in a variety of oak vessels, 28% going into large format tuns and 13% into first-use barrels.  After ten months, the wine was blended for a final six months in mature oak, and 600 cases were bottled in March 2024. 

At the time of bottling, alcohol measured 12.5%; Residual Sugar 0 g; Titratable Acidity 6.8 grams per litre; pH 3.56.

Dry: 0 g residual sugar
