Tasting Notes This is a huge wine with a ton of complexity, yet everything is in balance. The 2015 Temptress has aromas of ripe black cherry, black currant, subtle smoke, spice and violet floral. Followed by a palette with big ripe flavours of black cherry, dark plum, blueberry, blackberry and black currant with leather, spices and vanilla/oak on it’s long finish. This full-flavoured, full-bodied rich wine is very well balanced with elegant tannins.

Winemaking Notes The best barrels from our individual vineyard blocks are chosen for the Temptress blend. The 2015 vintage was the first time Malbec was included in the classic blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. The grapes are hand-harvested, individually fermented and aged in barrel on light lees – spending a total of 18 months in French and American oak.  With 25% of the juice coming from grapes left to dry for 60 days after being picked in the traditional appassimento style. The aging potential for this vintage is conservatively estimated at 5-10 years.

Wine and Food Pairing A perfect bottle to enjoy with T-bone or Porterhouse steak, Bison filet, marinated Rib eye/Prime rib steaks or roasts, game meats. Also excellent with dark chocolate, charcuterie, firm and blue cheeses or to sip by itself.
