The year just keeps getting better and better for our flagship red blend, Signature. After a 93-point score from John Schreiner, 92-points from Anthony Gismondi, and a Silver Medal (and 91-points) from Decanter World Wine Awards, Signature has just received a Gold Medal from the 2017 Wine Align National Wine Awards of Canada!
“Naturally, we’re thrilled,” says Winemaker and Managing Director Michael Clark. “Wine Align has some of the most knowledgeable wine judges in Canada so this indeed is a wonderful honour.”
Signature brought home a Gold Medal in the “Red Blends” category where it shared honours next to some of the most respected wines in Canada. The competition was huge this year and may be one of the largest wine competitions in the country. Among all of those amazing wines, our 2013 Signature was clearly a standout for the judges!
Signature has been produced in every vintage since 2006 and is always a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, and often includes Petit Verdot and/or Malbec. The 2013 vintage is made up of 51% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, and 2% Malbec. It was aged for 17 months in French oak barrels and then bottled, unfiltered and unfined, in June of 2015.
