2011 Versado Old Vine

Pours the colour of black cherries. Bright, complex aromas of black pepper and dark fruit compote.  Rich, intense palate with kirsch overtones, hints of dates and Asian spices. Wonderfully integrated tannins in a firm, long finish. ~ Ann Sperling

A year in the vineyard

Budbreak was good and even, with all shoots pushing out consistently, however a late spring frost affected some flowers/fertility. This damage wasn't evident until harvest when cluster weights revealed that overall yields were down. During berry development, the season was wetter than normal, reducing stress on the vines; this combined with the start of our full organic program encouraged us to thin heavily., and leaf pluck to open the fruiting zones to airflow. March and April were dry and somewhat cool, lengthening the ripening period while developing excellent flavours, tannins and especially colour.
