Eight Week Skins

Amarone
Amararone is a legendary, assertive wine from the Valpolicella area in northern Italy. Its uniqueness and character comes from the addition of partially dried grapes during fermentation. Dried grapes boost flavour concentration and create an intensity not found in regular wines. After 2 years of development, Cellar Craft has created a new process resulting in the most impressive Amarone style that you have likely ever experienced. Our new "SUPER PACK" of crushed grapes and whole, sun-dried grapes is added to the juices for traditional on the skins fermentation character and the maximum infusion of the concentrated, natural essence within the dried grapes.

Argentinean Malbec
Originally a minor grape in Bordeaux, France, Malbec has been elevated to greatness in the higher altitude vineyards of Argentina, especially in the Mendoza region below the towering Andres. Our Malbec is distinguished by its dark, derise structure; full, rounded mouth-fell; prominent, lush flavours of ripe cherry, black currant and black berry; subtle notes of clove, vanilla and caramel with background suggestions of earthiness. Cellar Craft's new, 18 litre format employs juices and concentrates fermented with the skins and solids from over 12 pounds of virgin, varietal grapes creating exceptional aromatics and depth of flavour. Premium, lightly toasted Hundarian oak is used in our exclusive 2-stage oaking procedure. This wine begins to show its character after 3 or 4 months in the bottle but is built for extended aging. It should continue to develop for 2 years or more.

Australian Meritage 5 - 4 – 0
Pronounced like "heritage", this wine is made with classic Bordeaux varietals, but with a New World twist. A full bodied, fruit forward, flavourful blend that highlights all the characteristics of the noble varieties it contains. The Cabernet Sauvignon brings dominant cassis flavours and firm tannins, the Merlot softens with hints of plum and violets and the Cabernet Franc adds dark cherry notes. Toast and vanilla flavours from the American oak will create a balanced classic wine. Left to mature, this wine becomes lusciously smooth and delicious.

Barbera 4 - 1 – 0
Barbera has been the most popular grape in the Piedmont region in Northwest Italy for centuries. In recent years, as growers and winemakers have been adopting more modern techniques, Barbera has undergone a remarkable transformation. With new vineyard care, especially around Alba and Asti, it has emerged as a top-ranked wine which readily withstands comparison to noble Nebbiolo (Barolo) but does not require the extended ageing that Nebbiolo demands.  Deep ruby, medium-bodied, and fruity in its youth, it ages to impressive depth and elegance. The fruit in our 2 year old samples remains as fresh and inviting as it was at 6 months.  The oak and tannins have mellowed to a soft and well-rounded impression that lifts the fruit to a most attractive level. We are beginning to better understand why the wines of today’s Piedmont Barbera can retail up to $100.

Cabernet-Merlot - Bare Ridge Vineyard, Walla Walla Washington 4 - 3 - 0
Walla Walla Cabernets and Merlots consistently rank in top 10 lists of the finest from the Americas. A classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet and merlot but typifies the unique Walla Walla profile of intense fruit, spice flavours and aromatics. Notes of currant, cherry and plum are backed by hints of black pepper, anise and coffee.

Cabernet-Shiraz - White Sands & Rattlesnake Valley Vineyard, Yakima Valley Washington 5 - 3/4 - 0
A blockbuster with a rush of blackberry, plum, cherry, and candied orange fragrances. Followed by flavours of currant, fig, cedar, and spice intertwined with a beautiful balance of toasted oaks. Rich, elegant finish. The powerful fruit flavours dominate after 2 – 3 months aging. The full complexity starts to be revealed after 6 to 12 months.

California Cabernet Sauvignon 4 - 3 - 0
A distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon in an appealing rich, complex style, this full-bodied wine has a deep garnet colour with an appealing aroma of plump blackberries, sweet vanilla and fresh violets. Notes of blackberries and cherries grace the palate interwoven with rich tannins and pepper spice extracted from the Cabernet Sauvignon Winery Grape Skins.

California Syrah 4 - 4 – 0
Bold and assertive, the bouquet is opulent with vibrant notes of blackcurrants, rich leather, and pepper spice laced with strong toasted oak. Fermentation on Syrah Winery Grape Skins reveals bold overtones of dark chocolate, burst of spice, and an abundance of bold, chewy tannins. The finish is seamless, adding depth and character to this masterpiece.

Carmenére 4 - 5 - 0
Colchagua Valley, Chile
Multi-flavoured Carmenere from Colchagua shows best when processed with extended oak contact. Break-through, two-stage oaking system. Hungarian oak shavings are introduced at the start of fermentation, then lightly toasted Hungarian oak cubes are used for further extraction during the post-fermentation stage. The oaks together add surprisingly soft tannis, subtle toast and vanilla which provide a terrific back-drop to the aromas and flavours of blackberry, black cherry, tropical fruit, and spice from the grapes. With age, notes of coffee, mocha, and tobacco can be expected along with a mineral tang that forms as part of the lengthy finish. The wine is medium to full-bodied with bright ruby colour. Its charm will begin to show after six months of cellaring, and it should continue to develop for at least two years.

Chateau du Pays
In the style of fine wines of the southern Rhône Valley. This wine derives its complex character from Syrah, Carignan, and Grenache grapes. Rich flavours suggestive of cherry, raspberry, blackberry, and plum combine with notes of pepper and chocolate. The finish shows a subtle herbaceous note and a suggestion of cedar and violets. American toasted oak adds the final harmonizing nuances. Shows well young but will continue to develop for over a year.
