2019 Magnum Cuvee
Fruit sourced from Golden Retreat Vineyard in Summerland and our estate in South East Kelowna.
Pinot Noir clones 777, Pommard, 828 & 667, Mt Eden & 115 are separately hand harvested, destemmed to small batches and cold soaked for 5-7 days before fermentation by indigenous yeasts. The total time on skins is 16 to 21 days. After gentle pressing, the wine completes malolactic fermentation and is aged 13 months in French oak barrels (40% new).
Pronounced dark fruit aromas of blackberry, blueberry, and plum. Hints of violet, chocolate, and vanilla. Dark cherry, baking spices and earth on the palate. Finishes with silky tannin and a full mouthfeel.
Cellar 10+ years.
