Description

This blend is a carefully concocted blend of Merlot, Cab Franc, Cab Sauv and Petit Verdot. When creating blends the Merlot is used for fruitiness and fullness, Cab Sauv for tannin and structure and Cab Franc for focus and freshness. We also added in some Petit Verdot for colour and structure.

This wine has aromas of pencil shavings, purple plums and fresh brewed coffee. It is a bright ruby. In the mouth is has balanced but firm tannins. It finished with a long vanilla finish.

Food Pairing: Our 2017 Meritage pairs great with nice, rustic charcuterie platters as well as nicely grilled steaks.

Vineyard:  Various Four Mile Creek and St Davids Bench vineyards

Cases Produced:  623

 

Appearance:  Deep purple-ruby in colour.

Nose:  Cedary, vanilla oak and spicy plum on the nose.

Palate:  Medium-bodied, dry, savoury-herbal flavours of blackberry and plum; lovely fruit expression carried on lively acidity.

Quality:  Outstanding quality. 90 points. Drinking well now, but would reward cellaring for a year or two.
