Description

Wine, like art, is an expression. An expression of the winemaker’s style, the vineyard’s terroir, the grape variety, and your taste.

TASTING NOTES
Bright garnet in the glass with aromas of jammy raspberries, blueberry compote, red plums and dark chocolate. The palate is dry but fruity, with supple tannins, refreshing acidity and complex flavours of plums, blackberries, vanilla, cedar and spice. The finish is savoury and flavourful with light tannins and lingering spice. Enjoy with roasted or braised red meats, rich meaty pasta sauces or hard cheeses. Also, a perfect compliment to spiced lamb meatballs with walnut and garlic pesto!

WINEMAKING NOTES
Our Expression Cabernet Merlot is a blend of our two estate vineyards in Creek Shores, created to showcase both a perfect Expression of Niagara Cabernet Merlot and also of our winemaker’s style! The grapes were harvested by variety between late October (starting with the Merlot and then the Cabernet Franc) and late November (for the Cabernet Sauvignon) and were then crushed and transferred to stainless steel for primary fermentation over approximately 30 days. The wines were then pressed and transferred to a selection of 228, 400, 500 and 600 liter oak barrels of various ages for six months. Following this the final blend was assembled and the wine lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling in August 2020.
