VINTAGE DESCRIPTION:

WINEMAKING:

The grapes were handpicked off our Oliver site in late October. Fermented in stainless tanks, the 2014 Merlot aged for 18 months in 1 and 2 year French Oak barrels.  This Merlot spent 6 weeks extended time on the skins after fermentation to further intensify the wine. 

TASTING NOTES

Aromas of Cherry and plum dance with vanilla to capture the senses.  Flavours of blackberry, cassis and chocolate are followed by hints of spice and soft velvety tannins.  18 months in French oak barrels.

 Enjoy now thru 2024
