Oak Regime: 100% French Oak Barrels
"2020 Addendum shows off the ripeness and power of the exceptional 2020 vintage, with ripe red fruit, plum and red cherry aromas. Full bodied and richly textured, this wine shows milk chocolate, wood, spice and cinnamon on the palate and boats a long elegant finish with silky tannins. If you are drinking this wine tonight, decant it for an hour and enjoy it with beef short ribs, or cellar it for up to 10 years in the right conditions."
Ross Wise, Winemaker
The 2020 growing season got off to a slow start with a cool and damp spring and flowering period. However, a dry and warm July, August and September allowed the vines to quickly able to make up for lost time. With smaller than average crop levels and perfect ripening conditions from September through to Thanksgiving, the fruit was able to achieve excellent flavour and phenolic ripeness, and was harvested with high levels of concentration and aromatic intensity. A stellar vintage for South Okanagan red wines.
