Rich in texture with a traditional elegance, this Merlot is crafted from own-rooted, cl 181 and cl 184 vines hand picked from Corcelettes' estate Stemwinder soils. Harvest on multiple dates and fermented in several small lots, winemaker Charlie Baessler crafts a Merlot with layers of complexity and depth. This wine is aged in a series of 1000L French oak vats that allow the wine to mature while maintaining it's identity- Similkameen Valley terroir. Look for a stony, mineral component integrated in soft tannin.
490 cases crafted.
The Menhir of Corcelettes, Switzerland, is iconic. It stands tall and proud near the castle of Grandson, where the Baessler family originate. Corcelettes' Menhir wine features a 100% Puncheon barrel aging program, following small lot fermentation with punch down extraction. Winemaker Charlie Baessler respects the Similkameen terroir and allows our vineyards to lead the expression by using these larger oak formats. Hand picked from the estate's Stemwinder soils, look for Cabernet's stewed black fruits and Syrah's sweet and spicy pipe tobacco notes. Harvested by hand, unfiltered, unfined.
270 cases crafted.
One of our coveted micro-lots, this Petit Verdot is nothing less than outstanding. Rarely found as a single varietal wine, Petit Verdot commands the very best grape growing sites and viticulture practice. Violets, olives and flint aromas leap from the glass. On the palate, rich dark fruits and bold tannins make a voluptuous, full-bodied wine. We are proud to offer this unique and exclusive wine.
70 cases crafted (3 barrels).
