Description

SANDHILL ESTATE & VANESSA VINEYARD

FLAVOUR PROFILE
Garnet colour with a bouquet of ripe plum, blackberry, black cherry, sweet smoky oak and baking spice. This full-bodied Merlot has soft yet drying tannins, great structure and moderate acidity. The fruit-forward palate shows notes of black cherry and blackberry, with an added touch of spice. The extra-dry, lingering finish shows notes of black tea, cocoa, spice, oak, blackberry and currant.

Enjoy with grilled red meats and sautéed mushrooms; Portobello mushrooms; duck confit; lamb chops with rosemary; roasted leg of lamb; beef brisket; two year aged Cheddar and Asiago cheese.

GROWING CONDITIONS
The spring began with a blast of heat and a quick start to the season. Summer and fall cooled slightly allowing a slow, long ripening season, ideal for red varietals, and for expressive aromatic whites. The valley saw slightly wetter than normal conditions; however, the vineyards remained healthy. The southern Okanagan Valley experienced 1635 GDD (Growing Degree Days), representing higher than average heat units.
