Cold winter temperatures on New Year’s Eve 2017 coupled with a very hot summer growing season and a wet fall, gave us a slight reduction in crop due to winter injury and drought stress in the vineyard. The warm growing season was a blessing for red varietals that weathered the winter temperatures giving very ripe grapes and an early harvest overall.
This wine is meant to savour alongside multiple courses. Pair with Shepherd’s pie, lamb shanks, home made mac and cheese, Osso Bucco, Fresh baked bread with cultured butter, Portobello mushroom tacos, or enjoy with a fine cigar.
