Cabernet Franc

The backbone of this wine is grown in our Haynes Creek vineyard in Osoyoos. The hotter-than-hot location, and sandy soil provide a ripe richness and distintive purity of fruit. To its Malbec, this south Okanagan terroir is more evocative of Mendoza than its traditional home in Bordeaux, and the wine’s inky colour and silky mouthfeel speak to this link. Through its Cabernet Franc, the vineyard expresses very fine structure, and bright red fruit flavours. The 2015 Meritage is a striking wine defined by a meeting of opposites on shared ground.

Tasting Notes
Malbec is the star of this wine, bringing its jammy, blueberry notes to the forefront – something that makes this plush red blend really stand out. The Cabernets provide a balanced structure and herbal notes to this bold blend.

Other Notes
We’d also pair it with Gustav Mahler’s, Symphony No. 2. Substantial, but not overbearing.
