2015 Hands Up Red
Join our Wine Club for member-only pricing.
This unique blend of 36% Merlot, 23% Marquette, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Frontenac Noir and 6% Cabernet Franc smells like cherry cola and raspberry. You will notice savory aromas like white pepper and mushroom. This is the perfect drink to pair with anything off the grill. Hands Up Red is a medium bodied wine with a grippy mouthfeel.
An early budbreak, followed by one of the hottest years in BC history, led to the earliest recorded grape harvest. We began picking some of our grapes in August, a full month ahead of schedule. 2015 was all about trying to slow things down. Luckily, our cool South Thompson nights helped us to retain plenty of acidity and freshness in our white wines. Meanwhile, the intense heat created some of the most concentrated and deeply coloured red wines we have ever produced.
