Background

Made exclusively with grapes from our vineyard in Okanagan Centre.  The vines are planted on very coarse, rocky, gravelly soil that would be unsuitable for most agricultural crops but is ideal for premium grapes.  The Merlot vines produce their best fruit when they are grown in soils like this - naturally setting a low crop and focusing their energy on ripening the fruit as opposed to sprawling with excessive plant growth.  The grapes are usually the last to be harvested, allowing them to ripen and develop flavour until late fall.

 

Tasting Notes

One year in American oak has developed rich, toasty, cedar notes over dried fruit, raspberry and blackcurrant aromas. Mellow yet complex, this wine can be enjoyed now or benefit from careful cellaring.

 

Food Pairing 

Serve with braised chicken, lamb, stew and strong cheeses.
