Winemaker Notes
This Meritage is a blend of 65% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Cabernet Franc. A third of the Merlot was estate-grown with the remainder coming from vineyards in the Okanagan and Similkameen. The Cabernet Sauvignon came from a vineyard in the Similkameen, the Cabernet Franc from a vineyard near Oliver in the Okanagan. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks and gently pressed before spending almost a year in French and American oak barrels. After bottling in June 2018, the wine was aged another 12 months in our cellars before release.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this food-friendly Meritage with a porterhouse steak, deer, elk, flavourful cheeses such as farmhouse cheddar or aged gouda, or chocolate truffles.
