Winemaker Notes
The grapes in this Merlot-predominant Meritage were hand-harvested, destemmed, crushed, and cold soaked for 4 days before inoculation with select Bordeaux yeast strains. Pumpovers were done every 4 hours to enhance colour and fruit characteristics. Each varietal was vinified and barrel matured separately for 15 months in French oak barrels. Our winemaker carefully crafted the final blend once the wine was removed from barrels.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this food-friendly Meritage with grilled meats, classic beef burgers, or a rich, cheesy lasagna.
