A SUNDAY IN AUGUST

 

2017 RED BLEND

About: The grapes were grown in an organic vineyard on the middle bench near the town of Keremeos in the Similkameen Valley. This valley is adjacent to the Okanagan and features slightly warmer temperatures and richer soils. Michael picks based on acidity and flavour instead of sugar levels. The grapes (50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon) were destemmed into open top tanks and 10ppm of sulphur was added pre-ferment. After four weeks on skins the wine is pressed off into neutral barrel where it ages for seven months. It is bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with only 10ppm of sulphur. 13% ABV
