Aged for 20 months in French Oak with 30% new barrels, bottled without fining or filtration
Our blend of Merlot (66%) and Cabernet Franc (34%) 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. 2016 produced some of the most balanced fruit we have seen from this site. Rich and dark aromatics are carried by a wonderfully fresh fine grained texture and brightness in the mouth.
