WINEMAKING NOTES

Sourced exclusively from our June’s Vineyard in the Creek Shores sub-appellation, our Cabernet Franc 2021 was harvested in mid-October. The grapes were sorted for quality both in the vineyard and again in the winery. After crushing and de-stemming, the must and skins were moved to stainless steel fermenters where the primary fermentation took place over 3 weeks with pump-overs for colour and flavor extraction. After pressing, malolactic fermentation was completed in tank where the wine was kept until bottling in August 2021 following a light fining and filtration.
