We source the grapes for our Merlot from many vineyards within Osoyoos and Oliver, allowing us to blend complementing characteristics of each area and vineyard. The grapes were destemmed and lightly crushed, then fermented on skins for 20 days. The wine was aged in both stainless steel tank (49%) and oak barrel (51%) for 12 months (mainly American oak of which 10% was new).
A deep purple garnet colour with a bouquet of blue plum and black cherry fruit, mingling with chocolate, smoke, sweet spice, and oak. This extra dry, medium-bodied Merlot has soft yet drying tannins and fruit flavours of dark plum and black cherry accented by sweet spice notes. Black currant, blackberry, dark plum, and a touch of coffee bean, spice and oak linger on the finish.
Excellent with grilled steak and sautéed mushrooms; lamb chops; duck breast in a red wine reduction; beef tenderloin; prime rib; beef wraps; bean stews; two-year-old Canadian cheddar with walnut breads; Bellavitano Merlot cheese.
