Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
An intense nose of dark berries, violets, kirsch, currants and chocolate welcome you to this Merlot. Fuller-bodied, with robust tannins and rich flavours of damson plum, raspberry, dried cherry, cocoa and vanilla with a smooth finish.
Vineyard Notes
Liquidity’s Merlot plantings from 1996 and 2005 have been cane pruned and then shoot and fruit thinned to produce 2 short tons per acre. The outstanding summer weather in 2013 led to the earliest start to the BC grape harvest on record, and a bumper crop. However, September saw temperatures start to dip before they took a more substantial plunge in October. The end of the season was soggy and with it came wasps, hail, sour rot and other challenges.
Winemaker Notes
The Merlot was hand harvested in mid-October, destemmed and crushed to ferment in small one-ton fermenters, with 30% wild fermented. The finished wine was racked to mature for 15 months in French oak barrels (20% new).
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this with aged or blue cheeses, grilled beef tenderloin, rack of lamb, roasted pork, or simply a fireplace and good friends.
