2018 Altitude is Here!

The next vintage of our most premium wine, the 2018 Altitude is here. This full-bodied and rich Bordeaux-style blend makes a wonderful special occasion wine. As we always say, sometimes the wine IS the occasion and this Altitude is certainly an occasion in and of itself. 

This year’s Altitude is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and entirely comprised of our own Upper Bench Estate grown fruit, which is farmed sustainably without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides or fungicides. 

As we only produced a very limited amount of this sought-after wine, this is one you are definitely going to want to have in your cellar.
