DetailsThis dry, medium-bodied wine opens on the nose with delicious aromas of red currant, cassis, vanilla, cigar box, and spices. On the palate, it unveils a round mouthfeel with polished tannins for a supported finish.
Terrior: The Canadian Okanagan is a beautiful and expansive valley stretching over 250km, where mother nature has created the ideal climate for viticulture. The lake that spans the valley helps to temper the summer heat, alongside the Cascade and Coast Mountains which create a rain shadow effect, resulting in the perfect growing conditions for grapes. The Okanagan is known for its wineries and fruit orchards and is surrounded by pine forests and provincial parks.
Pair this wine with braised beef with pomme purée, bison burgers with blue cheese, garlic lamb chops with chickpea purée, or triple cream cheese.
Includes Meritage bottle labels (pictured in bottle image) and 125 g of Genuwine Dried Grape Skins*. Genuwine grape skins are crushed, whole grape skins, gently dried in a proprietary process that preserves their original color and fresh vineyard flavor. Fermentation on Genuwine dried grape skins enhances the color, flavor profile and bouquet of wine.
*This recipe kit uses a RealGrape pack to boost flavor and body. Because the grape skins are not dried, they take up more space in your fermentor. This recipe requires the larger 7.9 gallon wine fermentor.
