Tasting Notes
The 2009 Kelham brings together a wonderful combination of fruit and earthiness to create a stylish wine. Berry and cassis are mixed with notes of cigar, green tea and earth. Many types of French oak barrels were used for this wine, offering spice, toast and char. The depth of flavor is enhanced by a velvety thickness, which expands into the bold and expressive structure that is classic Oakville.
Vineyard Notes
Kelham Vineyard is a 52-acre planting located at the base of the western hills of Oakville. Nickel & Nickel receives fruit from 7 acres planted to rootstocks which offer slightly different nuances to the blend. The soil is comprised of a well-drained, clay loam, which produces vines and clusters of moderate size. Some canopy management is performed to allow speckled light on the grapes which, combined with Oakvilleā€™s warm climate, is perfect for slowly ripening the fruit.
