In contrast to 2021 vintage, 2019 grape growing season summer months passed with warm temperatures, completely void of wildfires. These same steady and without heat spikes temperatures helped achieve sugar ripeness and the cooler than usual September extended the phenolic maturity of our red grapes.
On the palate, well- structured, yet rich, with expressive flavours of currants and dark cherry, both flanked by hints of Asian spice. Additionally, concentrated aromas of dark plums with peppery accents jolt out of the glass. Vibrant acidity adds dynamic feel to the satin texture on the finish. With the garden abundance of eggplants, we tried it with moussaka, delish.
As well, we are incredibly happy to share with you our news that our Carmenere vines we planted last year have all survived the 2021 Christmas cold front.
