A collaboration betweeen Benoit Touquette (Realm, Hartwell) and David Beckstoffer.
“A dark, sumptuous beauty, the 2012 Kata is a real heat-turner. Mocha, espresso, plums, black cherry jam and sweet spices are woven into a luxurious, super-expressive fabric of pure explosive energy. Wild flowers, violets, mint and lavender add the final layers of nuance.” – Antonio Galloni
“The 2012 Kata reveals layers of spice, wild flowers, licorice and cranberries intermixed with red stone fruits. This full-bodied wine has soft tannins offering textured layers on the palate. The wine is impressive in its complexity and richness.”
– Benoit Touquette, Winemaker
