Canadian wine delivered right to your door!
Tawse has been producing wines from the organically farmed Laundry Vineyard since 2002 and until now the Merlot has always been used in our red blends. 2013 sees the debut of the first single vineyard Merlot from that site, as a replacement for the beloved David’s Block. Aged in 40% new oak barrels, the colour is beautifully brilliant with a nose bursting with blackberry jam, alongside notes of vanilla, toasty oak and cardamom. Big, bold yet approachable tannins are experienced at the start before the toast and spice notes hit mid-palate. The finish is long, smooth and satisfying.
Food Pairing: The 2013 Laundry Vineyard Merlot will pair nicely with rich foods with a hint of sweetness such as pulled pork or a seared steak with caramelized onions.
