Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2014 Honest John’s Red has an intense and complex nose filled with aromas of black cherry, blackberry, and cracked pepper with subtle notes of cedar and orange blossom. These flavours carry onto the palate, where the rich texture and soft tannins combine to produce a delicious, impeccably balanced wine that calls out for good friends around a BBQ.
Vineyard Notes
The 2014 growing season was long, dry and warm. The grapes primarily came from vineyards owned by Road 13, with well-established vines. During harvest the grapes were sampled bi-weekly to measure flavour development and phenolic ripeness. Each variety and parcel of fruit was picked at its optimal point of flavour development for the Honest John’s Red style.
Production Notes
During vintage, the grapes for the 2014 Honest John’s Red were all carefully sorted, destemmed, and gently pumped to tanks for fermentation. That caps were pumped over twice daily for about eight days and the wine was then pressed off to commence the maturation process. The final blend was assembled, clarified, and bottled in September 2015.
