Produced from fruit in South East Kelowna, this terrific red excelled in a tough vintage thanks to meticulous farming and winemaking practices. Many clusters were lopped off midway through the season to divert resources to the remaining grapes. Though it rained in October, the fruit was left late on the vine to ripen fully. The mouldy bunches were then sorted away from the best. The wine is round, concentrated and jammy, with fresh berry and plum-jam flavours enlivened by spice and tight acidity. Great for grilled salmon or roast pork (mfvwines.com).
