Culmina Saignée 2020
From the Arise Bench, each grape variety for this blend was harvested through the final two weeks of October. The last was Cabernet Sauvignon on Halloween. Culmina Saignée 2020 highlights bright red berry aromas, with red cherry and red currant leading with hints of watermelon and papaya. On the palate, the profile is light and bright, delivering bone-dry flavours with an elegant medium-body. Crushable on its own but meant to accompany heightened summer fare. A lengthy, nuanced finish. Tasted September 2021.
Process: Fermented in 100% stainless steel.
