Ravine Vineyard Meritage 2020
Shipping calculated at checkout.
The 2020 vintage was pretty much a perfectly conducted growing season and ripening season by mother nature. This red blend was aged for 18 months in oak. This Meritage is a blend of our favourite Bordeaux reds from the Niagara on the lake appellations as well as from our estate to create a complete red blend that showcases ripeness, structure, ripe red fruit, and some earthy elegance.
The aromas on this wine are rich, ripe and extremely inviting. Flavours of currants, black cherry, subtle hints of coffee and chocolate are present with subtle earthy tones of cedar, leather and sweet hay. The colour is bold and intense and the body is medium to heavy, round, silky and finishes dry. The tannins provide a dry finish yet the wine carries the fruit up front and holds the controlled amount of acidity at the back creating a very well rounded wine.
