Hart - a mature male deer or stag….a perfect name for our Port-style wine. It not only embraces our name but also sounds like heart, the centre of our being. A special wine that comes from the heart in the cellar of Stag’s Hollow. Enjoy with special friends. Flavours are reminiscent of Christmas cake, with dried cherry, raspberry jam, preserved Italian plums, baking spice and garrigue.

Vineyard Notes
Hearle Vineyard, East Bench Osoyoos
Production Notes
Made entirely from exceptionally ripe Merlot that was hand harvested from our Osoyoos East Bench vineyard in early October 2013. The fruit was destemmed, left uncrushed and gravity transferred into shallow open top fermenters. During the entire maceration of the whole berry fruit, it was foot trodden 3 times daily in ordered to gently extract tannins and colour while avoiding astringency. Midway through the fermentation, barrel aged grape spirits were added to arrest the fermentation process and preserve the natural sugars in the wine. The free run wine was then drawn off, and the marc was basket pressed into older American oak barrels. The wine was then left to mature for 24 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
