2020 Bona Fide
Oak Regime: 100% French Oak Barrique
"2020 Bona Fide shows off the ripeness and power of the exceptional 2020 vintage, with bold plum, cherry and blackberry aromas. Behind this substantial fruit core subtle notes of roasted herbs, cracked black pepper and cold cream show through, along with a hint of graphite. Full bodied, richly textured and intense on the palate, this complex wine will pair well with grilled or roasted red meats, game, and harder washed-rind cheeses."
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.
