A rare grape treasure that originates from Campo Rotaliano, in Trentino, Italy. Crazy dark blue-purple, vibrant nose of blue fruits, botanicals and earth. Flavours are of blue and blackberries, and sour pie cherries stretched across a tense palate of mineral notes. Acidity is bright and refreshing with tannins being slightly chalky but easily tamed by pairing the wine with grilled meats.

Vineyard Notes
Shuttleworth Creek Vineyard, Okanagan Falls (gravels, glacial till & silty loam)
Production Notes
These grapes were hand-harvested from our Shuttleworth Creek Vineyard. 10% was added as whole clusters into the bottom of a 1-ton, open-top fermenter. The remainder of the fruit was sorted and destemmed directly on top of the whole cluster portion, and into a second fermenter. After a 3 day cold soak, they were warmed and inoculated. The cap was punched down by hand 3 times daily, and at the ideal tannin extraction, the must was drained and pressed. The wine continued its alcoholic fermentation in French oak barrels (3rd-fill), through to dryness. Once malolactic fermentation was complete, the barrels were left to mature undisturbed for 13 months before being blended, stabilized and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Winemaker Notes
Teroldego is one of our most exciting grapes to work with in the cellar. Unlike any other grape I’ve worked with, the vibrant colour you see in your glass was achieved almost instantaneously after being crushed. It is a wine reminiscent of Syrah, but with a distinctive edge of vibrant acidity and Italian varietal funk.
Food Pairing Notes
Classic: pair this wine with classic Italian pasta dishes featuring rich tomato based sauces. Adventurous: Middle Eastern spiced grilled meats and vegetables (think lamb!)
