Quick Overview

BC VQA Okanagan Valley

Gray Monk Odyssey III Port

This fortified red has a deep garnet colour with a slight browning rim resulting from time spent in the Solera system. Look for wonderful, warming bouquet of black cherry, dark chocolate and black raspberry coulis. This medium dry, full flavoured fortified-wine has an unexpected elegant side. Flavours of black cherry, chocolate and sweet spice unfold on the palate. Notes of cedar, black raspberry preserves and coffee bean linger on the finish.
Wine Making Merlot grapes were harvested from the Osoyoos and Oliver regions of the Okanagan Valley. The grapes underwent traditional red wine making; however, fermentation was arrested at about 9 Brix, leaving a relatively low alcohol point (8 to 9%) and some residual sweetness. The fermentation was stopped by the addition of a 95% alcohol spirit (bringing the finished wine to 19.8% ABV). Then half of the wine was added into a unique Solera blending system dating back to the 2009 vintage (using neutral oak barrels), whereby the final blend will consist of multiple vintages, ever-increasing in years as the process continues over time. To allow for this addition to the Solera system, an equal quantity of fully-aged wine is drawn from the system, and blended with the remaining half of the wine just before bottling. Limited production of 672 cases.
