Description

2015 Vintage is available by the bottle at the LCBO in the Vintages section, or by the case through Stem Wine Group - call the office for more info.  416-548-8824.   This vintage has been awarded the following accolades:  95pts Robert Parker, 95pts Wine Spectator, 95pts Athony Galloni and 99pts James Suckling. An inviting vintage of mid-weight and sweet fruit expression. The winter in 2015 has been mild, followed by a rainy spring, which has provided a good amount of water to the vineyards. May 2015 was marked by strong temperature variations, crucial for slowing down the blossoming. Indeed, the bud break has been on average with the previous year. Thanks to the appropriate agronomical techniques put in place (cover crops, no trimmings, shadowing of the bunches) the vines reacted well to the steady heating trend that took place between July and mid-August. The 2015 harvest will be remembered for the even ripening of the various plots and the consequent compactness of the picking period. The harvest has been completed in one day, September 29. Most of the fermentations have been spontaneous with an average length of fifteen days. The process has been regular and steady, without any interruption. The 2015 red wines feature a gentle tannic structure, a well-balanced acidity and alcohol, and a great mouth filling texture.
