Product Description

Buddhafull VQA

Vintage 2012


Appellation:  Similkameen Valley



All five Bordeaux varieties were hand tendered at Chopaka Ridge Vineyards.  Organic viticulture practices are conducted in one of the finest vineyards in the Similkameen.  Southwesterly sloped with more than 1390 growing degree days makes this vineyard most suitable for producing rich flavorful grapes. Extra “Hang Time” allows for phenolic ripening and enhanced  flavor development.



Hand harvested from October 6 to November 12.  DE stemmed and crushed into stainless tanks.  5 day cold soak, two pump overs daily.  A combination of a full delestage and pump overs were performed up to 3-4 times daily during primary fermentation.  An extended maceration of 7 days prior to being drained, settled and racked into a combination of French, American and Hungarian oak barrels.  The 2012 Buddhafull blend was assembled in July and was barrel aged for another 10 months prior to being bottled unfiltered. Blend, 35% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Franc, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec.  5-7 years with proper cellaring.


 Tasting Notes:

Notes of Cherry, Raspberry and Plum lead to mouth coating blackberry , currants and spice. This medium bodied wine also exhibits a wide array of red and black fruits, violets and fine chalky tannins. Drink now or hold in the cellar for the next 4-5 years.
