2012 Calluna Vineyards Cuvee Red Wine 750ml
At Calluna, 2012 started less stressed because the 2010 and 2011 vintages were successful and acclaimed wines. Our approach in the vineyard - less water, less fertilizer, more sun exposure to clusters through non-vigorous canopies - and our cooler climate combine to allow us to get our fruit fully ripe, even in those more difficult years. But 2012 is indeed a step up. Not only have the vines reached maturity but there is an additional density of fruit character that allows greater balance within the structure of the wine.
