We hand-harvested sections of our best rows of Cabernet Franc and Syrah from our arid, sandy Haynes Creek vineyard in Osoyoos during the month of October. Our Haynes Creek Vineyard at the base of Anarchist Mountain east of Osoyoos Lake is one of the hottest vineyards in the Okanagan. After destemming, we added the berries to the Amphora without any additions such as sulphur or yeast. We hand plunged it once per day and held it on skins for several months before pressing it off. It naturally fermented went through natural malolactic fermentation and is bottled unfined and unfiltered without any additives.

The Vintage
The 2020 growing season kicked off with periods of unusually cold and wet weather, which carried over into the early spring and contributed to a marginal fruit set. The cool spring progressed to a beautiful Okanagan summer, with consistently warm weather without any severe heat spikes. Perfect fall conditions followed, with warm days, minimal precipitation, and cool nights, producing beautifully balanced wines with intense fruit character.

Tasting Notes
The Dark Purple fruit and floral characters of the Syrah are balanced by the lighter and more elegant red fruits and earth of the Cabernet. The tannins are very present but show nice quality and should resolve well over time.
