2013 Aspire

$25.00 (inc. tax)

A rich, bold blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah with aromas and flavours of plum, blueberry and cherry.  Abundant tannins would suggest decanting before serving with heartier foods. Quite enjoyable now but also an excellent wine to age; 3-5 years is suggested.

Description

A rich, bold blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah with aromas and flavours of plum, blueberry and cherry.  Abundant tannins would suggest decanting before serving with heartier foods. Quite enjoyable now but also an excellent wine to age; 3-5 years is suggested.

Growing conditions

The Merlot came from our Naramata vineyard which is located on the East Bench of Naramata Township. Western-exposure Cab. Sauv. and Syrah are from our Palson Vineyard in Osoyoos. Located on the East side of Osoyoos lake, South-Western exposure makes it ideal to grow excellent fruit.

Winemaking notes

The three components of the blend were crafted so that they could stand alone. The Merlot was processed first, where the Cab and Syrah were crushed and cold-stored for 4 weeks to get additional colour and phenolic extractions. The Merlot was aged in French oak and the Cab and Syrah in American oak.
