The 2014 Cuvée Keltie is a remarkable wine and a great example of site selection and careful attention in the cellar. With no new oak used in the process, the mouthfeel is a result of both patience and selection. Patience comes from nearly two years in barrel which allows for both concentration of flavors but also mellowing of tannin. Selection is a result of understanding our sites better. We can isolate sub-parcels within larger vineyards that consistently carry the personality of Keltie. These sub-sections have a unique ability to be fermented nearly 100% whole-cluster.Visit Our Store
