2012 AC 35 BC VQA
The AC series, named after Anthony Cheng, owner of Chaberton Estate Winery, is based on a Merlot platform with each label indicating what the percentage of Merlot is in the blend. In AC 50, the Merlot is joined by 50% Cabernet Franc to produce a lively and vibrant discussion between the two grape varietals. Please join us on our journey as we continue to explore the enchantment of BC Merlot.
The seal on the front label is a stylized representation of the Chinese character “Superior”. It was created for us by renowned calligrapher Tang Cheong Shing.
Requires decanting and will benefit from extended bottle age (5 to 8 years more).
Tight structure with lifted acidity enables this wine to have great longevity. With more masculine aromatics of cigar box and dried tobacco, it is displaying very rich secondary characters from the barrels. This a complexe wine that finishes with licorice notes and will evolve greatly over time..
