Silky, classic, elegant
The Mavety family has been growing grapes high above Vaseaux Lake in the South Okanagan since 1971. Since 1991 they have been making their own wines under the Blue Mountain label.
This estate blend (cuvee) is made from 13-year-old vines, clones 114, 115, 667 and 777, and aged on lees in French oak barrels.
It's a wine with notes of spiced cherries, wet cedar, carrot tops, leather, and forest floor undertones. It's a silky wine with fluidity and elegance; tart red berries, fine spice and earth flavours prevail. It's an honest wine with a classic Burgundian character.
