Bleeding off a portion of juice from each of Culmina’s best Bordeaux-red varietal lots, Saignée is a elegant and complex rosé from select micro blocks on Arise Bench. With red raspberry and plum preserve notes supported by a creamy mid-palate this is a layered and inviting expression of Saignée.

 

APPELLATION
Golden Mile Bench (100%)

VINEYARD SOURCE
A blend of Malbec (32%), Merlot (31%), Cabernet Franc (26%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (11%) from Arise Bench.

WINEMAKING
Made from 9 different micro-block lots and bled off of Culmina's Hypothesis and Single-Varietal red must fermenters following 4 hours of skin contact, Saignée is fermented and matured in small stainless steel tanks and casks.

TASTING NOTE
This new vintage of Saignée once again is made from four of the classic Bordeaux-red varieties from Arise Bench and crafted in the classic 'Saignée' method using only free-run juice after only 4 hours on the skins. This wine has a creamy texture filled with raspberry, red licorice and plum preserves, flavours which together create a classic layered expression of this most favourite of Culmina's wines, offering style and elegance.   

FOOD PAIRING
Haida Gwaii Dungeness crab cakes served with fresh tarragon aioli.
