At the heart of our Merlot lies the diversity of our 25-acre Desert Ridge vineyard just north of Osoyoos. It’s a vineyard alive with nuance across 100 north to south running rows. Soil types vary from sandy to stony with some deep-running clay. Vine vigor varies, as do corresponding cropping levels. It’s as if it is 100 mini vineyards in one. After nearly 1 ½ years in barrels, we have integrated those 100 mini vineyards into one pure expression of place.

Aussie with Aussie palate, so bear this in mind, used to big reds. This one is the best red I've had from Canada since I got here 3 weeks ago. Lovely complexity and some body. A really good cool climate merlot

I just bought a few of the 2016 merlot and searched your website for vintner information on the vintage I just bought. Instead, despite Title saying 2016, and desc. saying 2016, your data is from the 2015 vintage. Lazy web skills or intentional mislead? "The heat of 2015 ripened all of this diversity to perfection, and after nearly two years in barrels, we have integrated those 100 mini vineyards into one pure expression of terroir."
