Pearl Morissette - 2018 Racine de Ciel
Have you ever had a wine that's equal parts fire and water, earth and air? This is a Cabernet Franc that has them all and exists on the horizon where cobalt waters meet a purple sky; and where air is bronzed and sweetened by fiery sunsets. The invitingly-dark bouquet has the richness and depth of dark chocolate along the enchanting smells of shaded woods and forest streams. Smooth and dense with the luxuirous taste of black cherries on the palate, yet gliding with the grace and power of aurora borealis tongues licking the night.
Vinification & Élevage:
2018 Racine de Ciel is made with 100% Cabernet Franc from our Home Farm Vineyard in Creek Shores appellation. The fruit was harvested on October 21st
and 30th, 2018 and processed as 100% destemmed fruit. Fermentation by indigenous yeast proceeded steadily and completed by November 11th. The wine was aged in one old foudre and a combination of old demi-muids and barrels without any racking for a total of 18 months.
2018 Racine de Ciel was bottled unfiltered and un-fined on May 5th, 2020.
