Meritage 2017

Oliver Twist 2017 Meritage

“Rich & Sensuous” A voluptuous, complex blend with notes of ripe blackberry, raspberry jam, black current, and cherry mingle with toasty spiceof cedar, nutmeg and cardamom, light florals of lilac and violet, and savoury,earthy notes of coffee, cocoa, sage and dry tobacco leaf.

Composed of a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon, with a small amount of Merlot and a dash of Malbec, aged for 12 months in French and American oak barriques, then allowed a further 18 months of beauty sleep in bottle before release.

All our Cab Sauv is sourced from family vineyards on the Osoyoos East bench, right on the US border, benefiting from its Southern position and the moderating influence of the lake effect. This allows maximum ripeness in thisCabernet Sauvignon vineyard, which was established in 1999. Slightly lower yields and phenomenal fruit quality delivered an excellent 2017 vintage, characterized by high flavour concentration, balanced tannins, complexity and natural acidity.

Serve this beguiling beauty with grilled T-Bone steak and crisp, butter-fried mushrooms, braised short ribs with savoury risotto, spiced beef tenderloin, or eggplant Parmesan.
