This wine was grown in the sandy loam soil of the Sundial Vineyard on the Black Sage Bench in Oliver, which is located on the southern part of the Okanagan Valley, where we enjoy long hot days and cool nights.

Our Meritage is comprised of several different clones to lend it depth and complexity including: three Cabernet Sauvignon clones which give it structure and richness; two Merlot clones which impart a velvety texture, soft tannins and with blackberry and black cherry fruit flavours; and one Cabernet Franc clone that provides a spiciness and black pepper characteristic. The grapes (Cabernet Sauvignon 44%, Merlot 32%, Cabernet Franc 24%) were carefully selected at the peak of ripeness. The wine was then matured in small French oak casks for 15 months before bottling.

Tasting Notes
soft tannins and with blackberry and black cherry fruit flavours, spiciness and black pepper characteristics.
Vineyard Notes
Although bud break was late, the grape set was on time and we had one of the best conditions for fruit set from the warm, dry spring and summer weather. Warm temperatures enabled good berry growth with exceptional ripeness by late September harvest. Grapes showed great balance, structure and colour.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy with grilled meats, roasts, rich tomato pastas, but best when shared with friends (new and old). It is ready to drink now, but will continue to age gracefully at least through to 2017.
