Blend: Malbec


Alcohol: 14.5 % | PH: 3.77 | Titratable acidity: 6.14 g/L

Bottling Date: September 2017

Tasting Notes:

Intense spice and pepper on the nose along with ripe blackberry, blueberry, cassis, liquorice, violet, orange zest and some vanillin oak in the background. The palate is full bodied and rich with lots of ripe blackberry, mulberry, black pepper, charred meat, firm tannins and juicy, raspberry like acidity with some dried sage and clove spice on the long finish. Try with beef and
peppercorn stew or rabbit braised in clove infused red wine.

Wine Making:

The grapes were harvested by hand from Burrowing Owl’s vineyards in
Osoyoos on October 22nd and 28th. They were destemmed and gently
crushed before being gravity fed into stainless tanks for skin maceration
and alcoholic fermentation. Both “free run” and pressed wine were then
moved into barrels for malolactic fermentation, followed by 21 months
ageing in a combination of oak barrels. The wine was bottled, unfiltered, in
September 2017.
