20% Cabernet Sauvigon,
5% 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. For 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. While for 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.
