Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

TASTING NOTES:     
60% Merlot- an Okanagan beauty combined with equally renowned Cabernet Sauvignon blends together into red wine heaven. 40% Cabernet Sauvignon provides the structure (dark flavour of black currant and ripe bell pepper) while the Merlot shows off a rich juicy/ jam component.

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:
Merlot:                         Estate Vineyard Okanagan Falls very light sandy soil
Cabernet Sauvignon:  sourced from Naramata, heavy clay loam
                       
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 12 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 December of the following year.
