2015 Turtle Rock Farms 'Tertre Rouge' $40 - ($34.78 Wine Club Price)
200 cases
14.3% Alc
Aged for 20 months in French Oak with 50% new barrels,

bottled without fining or filtration.

Our blend of Cabernet Franc (55%) and Merlot (45%) 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. 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. 2015 was one of the hottest vintages on record and produced a substantial and broody
wine, highly complex and layered.

Violets, brambly blackberry and dense chocolate cake are kept lively by signature bright acidity and raspberry coulis freshness.
