2012 AC 50 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.
Drinking well now as a big bold winter red. Full bodied with firm yet supple tannins which will improve with further bottle aging (up to 5 years more).
Bouquet of violets and perfume with underlying spicy aromatics such as vanilla and cinnamon. Lingering dried fruit finish of dark plums and black prunes.
