Savour notes of sweet red fruit, red cherries, and bright summer strawberries. As this wine opens up, enjoy this medium-bodied wine with fresh acidity, a lingering back palate, and a long finish.
This wine was made with grapes sourced from Naramata. Only pump overs were used to ensure it was was not over extracted. This enhanced the fruit characteristics in the wine and created a beautiful tannin structure. To allow the fruit in this wine to age gently, our winemaker carefully selected mostly neutral oak barrels to age the wine for 9 months. It was further bottle-aged for 12 months before release.
