The outstanding vintage of 2015 once again provided rambunctious flavours in our Cabernet Sauvignon, a varietal which Strewn is extremely passionate about. Harvested 23rd November, 2015 from the Home Farm located in Niagara-on-the-Lake at 25.2o Brix, from both the sandy and clay portions of the vineyard, the juice underwent primary followed by malo-lactic fermentation before maturation over a period of 20 months in French (23%), American (23%) and Canadian (54%) oak barrels, of which just over half were seasoned barriques. A 13 barrel assemblage was fashioned with minimal filtration prior to bottling so as to retain the true nature of the fruit. An age-worthy wine from a celebrated growing season.
