Vertigo is our unique blend of Merlot 47%, Cabernet Franc 24% and Barbera 29%. It is fruit forward on the nose with aromas of cassis, blackberry, plum and spice, enhance by a pleasant earthiness on the palate and flavours of chocolate, leather and rhurbard pie. It is a medium bodied wine with a soft velvety texture and a lingering finish.
This wine was hand picked and fermented in small lots. It spent around three weeks on skins before being pressed and racked to barrel. It was aged in 50% new oak, with a combination of French and American oak. It was aged about 10 months in barrel before being bottled.
