Wine Description

These grapes were grown on Secrest Vineyard, an amazing 35-acre cool mountain site above the town of Oliver. In keeping with our tradition of less is more, the wine was handled at a minimum, gently aged in old French oak barrels and bottled in its pure state.
Loaded with bright cherry aromas and flavours, with soft texture and light tannins, the wine is best enjoyed with tomato-based dishes, salmon, soft ripe cheese, or pork.
