2013 Quatrain

2013 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 distinct blocks to ensure perfect ripeness and opulent flavours from our vineyard estates in eastern Osoyoos (90%) and the Black Sage Bench in Oliver (10%). This unique cuvée was fermented in small, specially designed French oak fermenters.

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 of 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.
