Vineyard Notes
2017 was a roller coaster of a year - the valley faced both flooding and drought that haven't been seen for decades. Winter was chilly! Overall spring was cool with fewer sunlight hours and more precipitation that usual. This resulted in a bud break that was 2 weeks later than the average. Areas of the Okanagan Lake to the Osoyoos vineyards, overflowed and flooded our southern vineyard. Summer came in hot and dry bringing lots of sunshine and one of the most intense fire seasons on record. A classic warm autumn allowed for a long ripening season. Overall, 2018 was a year of ups and downs where the vineyard team embraced the struggle with Mother Nature and ended the ride with ripe, balanced, beautiful grapes and another stunning vintage.
Production Notes
61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Cabernet Franc
Winemaker Notes
This Monster is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The grapes were hand picked and sorted in the vineyard. The berries were then crushed & held cold for four days. During fermentation, a combination of hand plunging the must and judicious use of pumping over ensured the optimum level of tannin extraction.
