2021 Saignée 1.5L
Golden Mile Bench (100%)
A blend of Malbec (66%), Merlot (34%)
Made from select micro-block lots and bled off of Culmina's 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 two of the classic Bordeaux-red varieties 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 stylish, elegant and layered expression of this most favourite of Culmina's wines.
