2013 Compendium

2013 Compendium

A COMPENDIUM is a compilation of concise items on a subject, in our case, the combination of soil, climate, clone selection, and hand- harvesting of grapeclusters to create this unique wine. The fruit was selected from specifically designated blocks within our vineyard estates in Osoyoos (90%) and Oliver (10%) where the porous soil forces the vines to search for nutrients. This struggle results in elegant and luscious fruit.

Production
Vintage 2013 was a season of change – early to start, late to finish, and with exceptional flavour potential. A warmer than normal spring brought early budbreak followed by an extremely rainy June that slowed vine growth. Balance was restored with above average temperatures in July and August allowing grapes to mature along a normal ripening curve. The warmest vintage since 2003 cooled off just in time for harvest. In September, heavy rainfall caused significant delays in the grape harvest resulting in our longest picking season ever. Overall, fruit quality was superb for both red and white varietals and the wines are showing excellent balance and character.
