ABOUT THE WINE

We source the grapes for our Malbec from our on-site estate vineyard.  Primary fermentation was done in open top fermenters and hand-plunged to break surface cap twice daily, followed by malolactic fermentation and aging in new American and French oak barrels for 14 months.  Limited production of 215 cases.

  

TASTING NOTES

This rare Canadian rooster is attracting plenty of attention.  The alluring bouquet of blueberry, clove, allspice, blackberry and oak draws you in closer.  This medium-bodied wine is almost tannin free with plenty of juicy fruit flavours of red currant, blackberry and blueberry.  The lingering finish exhibits notes of black tea, currant and spice.  Enjoy now through 2018.

FOOD PAIRINGS

Excellent with beef empanadas; beef and Guinness stew; beef brisket with barbecue sauce; short ribs; marinated leg of lamb; braised meats; saucy barbecued ribs; two to three year old aged Gouda.
