Winery Exclusive!

Culmina's beloved Saignée is available in a magnum format for the 2019 vintage. Produced in limited quantities, this rosé is the perfect addition to any meal or occasion.

 

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.
