Known as “The Big Fella” by Craig, our famous Grand Red blend is bursting with flavours of rich black fruits dusted with baking spice. It is elegant and full-bodied with delicious, powerful tannins and a long lingering finish of red and black berries, and black tea. This is definitely a keeper! Craig recommends decanting this wine if enjoying now through 2016. Pair with medium-rare grilled steak with red wine jus, rack of lamb, grilled lamb chops, prime rib roast with root vegetables, rich game meats, Beemster 18 month aged Gouda, or 2 to 4 year old Canadian cheddar with walnuts and crackers.
How does Winemaker Craig McDonald create Grand Red?
It all starts in the vineyard! Craig intensely manages our estate-owned Clark Farm and Carlton Vineyards to produce low-yielding vines with deep fruit concentration. The best of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon were hand-picked, cold-soaked, fermented and barrel aged separately in 100% French oak for 12 months before the winemaking team expertly blended to perfection! The 2012 final assemblage of 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 27% Cabernet Franc was then aged an additional 6 months in French oak to concentrate the flavours and texture before bottling with minimal filtration. This is truly a sum of all its parts.
