Calluna Vineyards Cuvée (CVC)

Calluna Vineyards Cuvée is meant to be an expression of our Chalk Hill appellation where great sunlight and a cool climate produces intense fruit in a wine with balancing acidity, round tannins and moderate alcohol levels. Taking its cue from the Right Bank of Bordeaux and the village of Saint Emilion where winemaker David Jeffrey apprenticed with Dr. Alain Raynaud, the Calluna Vineyards Cuvée is a blend built primarily on Merlot, with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon playing an important role along with Malbec and Petit Verdot.
