Merlot 2019

TASTING NOTES:     
100% Merlot- pure fruit with well balanced tannins. Robust yet refined. 

FOOD PAIRING:        
So versatile when it comes to food pairing. This wine is made to complement your dishes, not to outdo them. You won’t get tired of this wine as it has a wonderful structure combined with soft tannins and fruit. Have it with roasts, BBQ, charcuterie, or just a good book.

VINEYARD:
Estate Vineyard Okanagan Falls very light sandy soil
                       
WINEMAKING:          
The winemaking is very old fashioned as we crush the grapes, ferment them on the skins and press the skins. The malolactic fermentation happens right after, in a temperature controlled environment. The wine hibernates unfiltered for 18 months in French oak barrique barrels. We use 30% new and the balance in 2-5 year old barrels as we are after a nice, structured oak taste which does not dominate the wine. Bottled under screwcap in September of the following year.
