The vineyard on GlenWood finally achieved the desired balance to produce premium quality grapes. Well balanced growth delivers even ripeness and beautiful structure.

about the harvest: A fantastic red wine vintage. The grapes reached optimum ripeness with ease, and the balance between yield and growth needed minimal interference.

in the cellar : The best quality grapes were selected, gently pressed and fermented in half-ton open-top fermenters. The grapes were punched down by hand six times a day and fermented until dry.
The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel and was matured for 18 months in second-fill French oak to produce a well-integrated, complex profile.

Production: 5 200 bottles.
