Quintessa is always deep and thoughtfully made. The biodynamically-farmed estate vineyard was designed to take advantage of every feature and microclimate created by the property’s five hills, lake, riverbed, and surrounding forest. From the beginning, it has been farmed organically. Most of the estate’s vines are now 27 years old and mature enough to handle challenging weather conditions when they arise. Every block – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Carmenere – was harvested in sections so that fruit could be picked at the moment it showed its best character.

 

“Crushed berries, incense and blackberries with black-olive undertones. Extremely perfumed. Medium to full body. Very intense for a 2017. Crafted and polished. Long and caressing. Elegant. Drink or hold.”

“The 2017 Quintessa is an absolutely sensational showing in this vintage. Composed of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 3% Carmenére and 1% Petit Verdot, this begins with striking aromas of dark cherries and currants followed by spices, loam, dark cocoa powder, wild flowers, herbs and hints of baking spices all taking shape. On the palate this is full-bodied and structured with well-polished tannins framed by a beautifully touch of acidy providing a wonderful sense of freshness. Flavours of dark currants, baking spices and loam continue to leave a lasting impression on the supple finish. This is a total beauty that is drinking exceptionally well today, but also shows wonderful aging potential as well. 2020-2037.”

“Already bottled, the 2017 Quintessa displays a deep garnet-purple colour. The nose needs a little coaxing before it reveals bold, expressive notes of crushed red and black plums, black currant jelly, wild blueberries and kirsch with nuances of camphor, cloves, cedar and lilacs plus a hint of oolong tea. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has beautifully expressed, elegant red and black fruit layers, with a sturdy, grainy frame and plenty of freshness, finishing long and earthy.”
