Deep in colour and intensity, Hypothesis represents the Triggs’ culmination of efforts to create an icon quality wine from select micro blocks off their Golden Mile Bench estate. A rich, bold, and terroir-driven blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec. 

APPELLATION
Okanagan Valley

SUB-APPELLATION
Golden Mile Bench

VINEYARD SOURCE
An estate grown blend of Cabernet Franc (36%), Merlot (35%), Cabernet Sauvignon (23%), Petit Verdot (4%) and Malbec (2%) from Arise Bench.

WINEMAKING
Matured for 16 months in a combination of new (30%), 1-year-old (35%), and 2-year-old (35%) French oak barrels.

TASTING NOTE
Botanical aromas of ‘Okanagan garrigue’ (pine mushrooms, sage, wild mint, cedar) combine with exuberant red cherry and sweet red plum aromas before coalescing with savory earth, tobacco, and dry forest floor. Mouth-filling and robust, generous and integrated fruit, toasted oak, and clove flavours are carried all the way through the supple, luscious finish.

FOOD PAIRING
Herb-crusted rack of lamb with pine-nut and parlsey gremolata pesto.
