2012 Winemakers Selection Exclamation Merlot


With an earlier ripening time than the other Bordeaux varietals, Merlot is proving to be an ideal grape for Niagara terroir. With its high natural acidity and great tannin structure, the merlot wines from Ontario are showing early signs of great ageability similar to that of top Right-Bank Bordeaux Merlot’s. Our Winemakers Selection Exclamation Merlot shows complex notes
of damson plum, black raspberry, ripe cherries and violets on the nose. The palate exudes notes of dark berries, chocolate, graceful minerality, with a mouth-feel that is as opulent as it is long lasting with velvety tannins and balancing acidity. Having spent more time in barrel than average, this wine is built for the cellar. This wine would pair wonderfully with grilled red meats or cured meats with cheese.
