2013 5th Element 3L
The 2013 growing season was one of the best overall vintages we have seen in many years. The vines budded early and we received great warm temperatures all season long, culminating in a refreshingly early harvest, some 2 weeks earlier than normal. Quality and flavour intensity was very high across all grape varietals. The grapes for the 2013 Fifth Element came from the Blind Creek Vineyard in the Similkameen valley (about 63%), with the balance of grapes coming primarily from the Rd 13 Castle Vineyard in the Okanagan Valley.
The Blend: 45% Merlot 18% Syrah 19% Cab Sauv 13% Cab Franc 5% Petit Verdot
