Description

Signature is our flagship blend of red Bordeaux varieties, produced by hand, and aged for 15 months in French oak barrels. The 2015 vintage, the product of a long, hot growing season producing ripe fruit character, is a lush example of this iconic wine. Enjoyable in its youth, the balance and structure of this wine will ensure its ability to age for many years.

Nose

The taster is enveloped in a dense aromatic profile of cassis, raspberry and blackberry, with hints of violet.

Mouth

On the palate the wine is layered with flavours of sun-ripened cherries, raspberry, cassis, mint and blackberry, with complex notes of graphite, sagebrush and pepper. Structure is provided by the soft but full tannins, and a stony mineral quality to the long finish.

Winemaking Notes

Our winemaking philosophy is to treat our grapes gently and with respect, in order to produce complex, age worthy wines that showcase the very best expression of the Similkameen Valley terroir. Each vineyard block was harvested separately, by hand, when judged to be at optimal maturity. The grapes were then gently de-stemmed, crushed, and fermented following a moderate cold-soak. The majority of the lots were fermented using only native wild yeasts to reinforce terroir expression. After a gentle pressing the wines were aged for 15 months in 100% French oak barrels. Only the barrels showing the greatest complexity, depth and elegance were selected for our Signature blend. Simplicity and a light hand in the winery have allowed us to deliver a wine which speaks of the beauty of our land.
