Wine Of The Week

 

Cabernets 2010 Summerhill Pyramid WineryOver the last decades, producers in the Okanagan Valley have undertaken great efforts to establish this unique and breathtakingly beautiful valley as North America’s newest premium wine‐growing region. The diversity of vines that thrive in varied micro-climates provides winemakers with a multitude of options to express their creative talents and technical expertise.

In the world of red wine, Cabernet Sauvignon is awarded a fanatical popularity by wine lovers. A hearty grapevine, Cabernet Sauvignon does well in British Columbia. Surviving the winter is rarely a problem, but getting this late ripening grape to full maturity can be. Cabernet Franc whose buds matures more than a week earlier than Cabernet Sauvignon is lighter in colour and tannins than its more fashionable offspring. Cabernet Franc is a great blending grape agent that helps fill a wine balance and structure.
