2012 Quatrain

2012 Quatrain

QUATRAIN is four lines of verse that we interpret as four varietals giving balance and structure to this wine. We painstakingly managed each vine from distinctblocks to ensure perfect ripeness and opulent flavours from our vineyard estates in eastern Osoyoos (80%) and the Black Sage Bench in Oliver (20%). This unique cuvée was fermented in small, specially designed French oak fermenters. It was aged in French oak barrels for 14 months. 82 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: 82.
