Corcelettes Talus 2020

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaTalus was launched last year for the winery’s 10th anniversary. As the flagship, it is given every consideration in the vineyard and at the winery. The vineyard is classic Similkameen, a stony terroir of the windy, wild valley. Year two was born in a great year, and subtle adjustments have given it more style. It is still a big wine but less of a brute and more of the iron fist in a velvet glove. A select block pick, if not a vine by vine pick, is dense with rich sweet tannins and savoury black fruit. The mix is 40/35/20/3/2 merlot/cabernet franc/cabernet sauvignon/malbec / petit verdot, and the palate is a melody of olives, black fruit, cedar, tobacco and spice, all with balance. It is made to age; five to seven years would be a minimum for collectors.Tasted: 12 July 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
