2017 Great Northern Vineyard Zinfandel

Year: 2017, Alcohol: 15.5%

Great Northern Vineyards is located on the bench above the Similkameen River in Cawston, in the Similkameen Valley. The soils are predominantly river rock, adding to the mineral complexity shown in this wine. The vineyards are owned by Colleen Ferguson and Janet Watts and the wine was produced by Kettle Valley Winery. The grapes were handpicked on October 31 and November 1, 2017 at approximately 22.8 brix.  The wine has gone through a full malolactic fermentation and was aged in French oak for 22 months before being bottled.
