2013 Turtle Rock Farms ‘Tertre Rouge’ – $40.00 (SKU 239103)
Aged for 21 months in French Oak with 45% new barrels13.8% Alc.
Our blend of Cabernet Franc (65%) and Merlot (35%) is named after the evocative corner of the Le Mans racing circuit in France, where perfect driver balance and finesse are key to a clean exit leading to one of the longest straightaways in motor racing. Much like this corner requires the hand of an experienced driver; our wine will perform best after time in the cellar.
This is a single vineyard wine from Turtle Rock Farms above the Naramata Bench. Carefully tended by the Britton Family, this stunning property has perfect conditions for long slow ripening of Cabernet Franc and Merlot producing fantastic flavour and tannin ripeness while keeping brightness and balance. 2013 showed the results of continual fine tuning of canopy and crop levels to achieve powerful but elegant ripening of both varietals. Brooding dark fruit complexity with brambly sarsaparilla and sweet pea and a fine grained long finish
