Wine Profile

Awards
Gold Medal All Canadian Wine Championship Gold Medal L.A. Intl Wine Awards Silver Medal San Francisco Wine Awards
Vineyard Notes
Three Boys is our Estate Vineyard on the Black Sage Bench, where the east-west orientation and famous sandy soil provide for maximum sun exposure and great drainage. Leaf thinning also allowed for maximum sun exposure and ventilation in the fruit zone. High fruit selection accounted for 3.5 tons per acre.
Production Notes
500 cases produced
Winemaker Notes
Grapes were hand harvested and hand sorted followed by the stemmed whole berries transferred to fermenting tanks for a five day cold soak, twice daily pump over to extract color and flavour. Fermentation was maintained at a consistent 26 degrees.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs well with red meats, spicy dishes and strong cheese.
