Time to gather around the table to share a big bottle!
At Meyer, the fruit was picked in mid-to-late September. McLean Creek Road Vineyard is their home vineyard in Okanagan Falls. The sparse, sloping, sandy alluvial/glacial gravels and sandy loams support five Pommard and Dijon clones (114, 115, 91, 667, 777) each farmed (not certified) organically, plot by plot. The finished juice went into French oak (25 percent new) for 11 months and was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Earthy, sour cherry, raspberry over a spicy forest floor base. The balance is perfect, the alcohol a modest 13.5 percent, but the good news is you can enjoy it now. It was perfect with a curry chicken dish.
