Cabernet Franc (53%), Merlot (37%)
The best qualities of each variety are captured in this artfully assembled blend. Medium deep ruby hue with richly satisfying notes of raspberry compôte, cherry, licorice and bitter chocolate. Fresh and well balanced with rich mouth-feel and complexity. Soft tannins characterize the elegant structure of the wine. Enjoy alongside white and red meats, grilled, roasted or smoked. Also excellent with red pasta, pizza and mushroom dishes. This wine appreciates aeration so use a nice big glass and enjoy over two days.
The grapes were harvested from our Lakeshore and June’s vineyards in the Creek Shores sub-appellation of the Niagara Peninsula. Merlot was harvested first followed by Cabernet Franc a few weeks later in early November. Both varieties were fermented and aged separately in stainless steel for three months. The wines were then blended, moved back into stainless steel for further resting and flavour development. The wine was bottled in early May 2018.
