Once again, the 2016 Hatfield’s Fuse is a cornucopia of flavours made with twelve different grape varieties. Aromas and bouquets of the Okanagans’ grapes and fruits are expressed along with an amazing taste and flavour spectrum. All the parcels of grapes were harvested at separate times ranging from the 20th of Sept to the 19th of Oct with an average Brix of 22.
Each parcel of fruit was vinted separately. Various strains of yeast were incorporated to achieve maximum flavor layering in the wine. All wines were fermented cool to retain flavor intensity. They were also clarified and stabilized separately in stainless steel tanks and kept cold until blending just before bottling.
