2018 MERLOT "Naramata"

2 acres planted in 1995. Sand. Naramata Bench. Gently de-stemmed – 5 days of skin contact. Basket pressed. Fermented in neutral French oak for 7 months. Unfined and unfiltered. This is NOT what you may have come to expect from Okanagan Merlot. Light in body we do not try to make a big or heavy wine here. Despite the fact that this single vineyard produces amazing and serious fruit which could handle extended time in barrel we feel the wine should highlight the inherent fruit qualities and not oak or heavy extraction. Bright, light ruby. Sweet red plums, savoury herbs, fine tannins and refreshing acidity. Medium bodied, supple and driven. This is unfined and unfiltered and is slightly hazy. Now – 2022
