2012 Compendium

2012 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 (95%) and Oliver (5%) where the porous soil forces the vines to search for nutrients. This struggle results in elegant and luscious fruit. Following fermentation and extended maceration, this wine was aged for 14 months in French oak barrels. 103 barrels produced.

Production
The 2012 season started well and early Spring conditions were settled with a couple of chilly mornings, but no frost damage. Bud break was nearly on time, but June brought cooler weather with consistent, intermittent rainfall A warm and dry summer ensured ideal fruit development resulting in slightly reduced workloads in our vineyards. The continuation of mild, sunny autumn weather allowed the grapes to develop thick skins and gave rise to expectations of flavourful, extracted wines. Barrels produced: 103.
