The Speck Family Reserves hail from the estate’s oldest vineyards in the Short Hills Bench, shovel planted by the Speck Brothers starting in 1988. These thirty-plus-year-old vines are among Canada’s oldest of any consequence. This age further restricts the yield per vine while adding in even more complexity of flavour. Typically the SFR wines are composed from their most interesting, dry-farmed vineyards, which enjoy southern exposure. All vines are clonally selected except in a few special cases where the plantings are old enough to predate this practice, making these unique vineyard blocks an opportunity to add qualities that cannot easily be reproduced.

2012 was a vintage of the decade for reds, the best year since 1998. The summer was long, warm and dry, creating excellent ripeness and sugar levels.

Concentrated dark fruit tones balanced by black raspberry nuances. A hand-picked blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot where yields were restricted to less than 2 tonnes per acre and aged in French oak barrels. This wine will improve with 7 to 10 years of cellaring.
