Winemaker's Comments: Meritage is a premium blend of Bordeaux reds, the 2013 vintage consisting of equal thirds of David’s Block Merlot, Hillside Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Laundry Vineyard Cabernet Franc. The rainy growing season of 2013 gave us high crop levels and big, fat grapes with slightly diluted flavours. Because only the barrels of premium flavour profiles are selected for Meritage, only 1,000 bottles were produced. This vintage of Meritage has an herbaceous nose of tobacco leaf and green pepper with hints of cedar and dark fruit. Bold tannins are prominent alongside crisp acidity and shy notes of cranberry and blackberry.
Growing Conditions: From the David’s Block, Laundry and Hillside Vineyards. Viticultural practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand leaf removal and hand harvest.
Food Pairing: This is a Meritage will certainly benefit from enjoying with food. Try it with richer fare such as Beef Bourgogne, braised lamb or Beef Stroganoff with Porcini mushrooms.
Drinking Window: Enjoy now after decanting. Best enjoyed from 2017 through to 2022!
