Experience the layers of depth and complexity in Midnight...
"A border that is crossed from the time we are born, where we leave behind moments that will never come again.
The point where life's one way compass transitions forward to our best journey yet.
The challenge is, we think that we have time. Live and love slowly, as it is our most precious currency.
Keep the wonder in your soul while you wander, and raise a glass to the questions that have no answers.
When midnight arrives, may you reflect on your day with warm smiles, gratitude and no regrets."
The fruit for this wine was selected from our favourite blocks in the sun-soaked south Okanagan. Each variety in this blend underwent a slow controlled ferment in our custom Lagarde stainless steel tanks. Upon completion of primary fermentation, the free-run juice was transferred to a fine selection of French oak barrels. The varieties rested in oak for 10 months before the final blend was created and married together. After which this wine rested an additional 22 months in the same oak barrels.
100% French oak barrels. Only 21 barrels were produced.
We are blown away by the superb characteristics and bold fruit showing in the 2018 vintage. Winemaker, Jim Faulkner selected his favourite 21 barrels and allowed the wine to develop 32 months in oak. The result is a magical Bordeaux wine that seems to make time stop for a moment as you discover its layers of depth and complexity. The colour is deep ruby with a rich purple hue. The nose is elegant and savoury with cassis, black cherries, and cocoa. On the palate, you will find black raspberry and bumbleberry pie with bitter chocolate. The structure is dense with silky, sweet tannins. Lingering spice adds to the complexity and beautiful finish. This wine has a big future and will continue to improve in the cellar for the next decade or two.
