Quintessa

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 28 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.

Intense aromas of cassis, black cherry, and raspberry intermingle with savoury notes of sage and thyme; Quintessa continues to unfold as notes of dark chocolate, graphite and fresh tobacco mingle with the fresh fruit. Precise and dense, the wine shows supple tannin that play with flavours of black cherry, dark chocolate, and crushed rocks. It has a perfect balance of fresh acidity followed by bright fruit and minerality at the finish that portends unparalleled aging potential.

Quintessa will cellar for decades and will reward your patience with many layers of delicious flavours that evolve with each sip and over the course of the evening.

“An exquisite wine, relying primarily on Cabernet Sauvignon from a single estate. Aromas of lavender, dried herbs, and grapefruit pith combine with flavors of firm fruits and cocoa on a structure of abundant, powder-fine tannin and a mouthwatering finish. This wine is refined, detailed, and delicious with as much elegance as energy.”

“So much graphite and volcanic character on the nose with metal shavings and gunpowder. Black ink, iron and rust, too. Blackberry and blackcurrant undertones. Full-bodied but not overpowering, with chewy and juicy tannins that are long and very subtle. Superb finish. From biodynamic grapes with Demeter certification. 91% cabernet sauvignon, 4% cabernet franc, 3% carmenere, 1% merlot, and 1% petit verdot.”
