2020 Saignée 1.5L
Golden Mile Bench (100%)
A blend of Cabernet Franc (48%), Syrah (17%), Malbec (15%), Cabernet Sauvignon (12%) and Merlot (8%), from Arise Bench.
Made from select micro-block lots and bled off of Culmina's Hypothesis and Single-Varietal red must fermenters following 4 hours of skin contact, Saignée is fermented and matured in small stainless steel tanks and casks.
This new vintage of Saignée is made from four of the classic Bordeaux-red varieties and Syrah from Arise Bench and crafted in the classic 'Saignée' method using only free-run juice after only 4 hours on the skins. This wine has a creamy texture filled with raspberry, red licorice, and plum preserves, which together create a classic layered expression of this most favourite of Culmina's wines, offering style and elegance.
Tacos al Pastor made with spit-roasted pork and grilled pineapple, topped with fresh cilantro.
