Monte Creek Ranch Winery
Hands up Red

2017

$263.40 ($21.95 per bottle)

Forging a new era of exploration for the Thompson Valley, Monte Creek Ranch offers the next frontier in winemaking.

This unique blend of Frontenac Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Franc spent 9 months primarily in French oak foudres, with a partial volume in barriques

ACWC Silver Medal

Designed to be drinkable now and to highlight the bright fruit, it is also dry with medium to medium plus acidity to keep it food friendly: Black cherry, raspberry, and toasted walnut aromatics lead into a palate with medium body and fine tannin, characterized by flavours of blackberry and caramel.

Like all Monte Creek wines this fruit was 100% hand sorted. Partial Wild ferment added complexity and interest. It is lightly oaked with the majority of the blend in large french oak tanks for 9 months and the remainder in barrel. Some of the malolatic fermentation was delayed until spring in order to enchance tanning evolution and colour stability.
