Description

This traditional blend of 73% Sauvignon Blanc and 27% Semillon combines to form rich, rounded, vibrant notes. Classic white meritage aromas of honeydew melon, pear, and a hint of tangerine. On the palate, tastes of apricot and mango swirl with ripe gooseberry. This wine is mellowed by barrel ageing, resulting in a sturdy and vibrant finish with delicate traces of oak. Intended to age well.

Comment:

This wine is part of the outstanding portfolio proudly produced by Harry McWatters, a pioneer and veteran of the British Columbia wine industry who celebrated his 50th vintage this year. Together with his family, McWatters produces three distinct wine brands – McWatters Collection, TIME Estate Winery, and Evolve Cellars – ensuring that there is a fantastic wine for every taste.  

 

The 2014 Meritage White is nuanced and layered. The subtle hints of barrel ageing soften the citrus and fruit notes and offer the wine a pleasant mellowness. The Semillon provides structure and a hint of sweetness, rounding out the corners of the Sauvignon Blanc. It’s drinking very nicely right now, but could easily age for another 2-3 years. A very elegant wine.
