The 2010 Merlot Terroir was produced in a remarkable vintage from fruit grown totally in the Niagara-on-the-Lake sub-appellation. Post fermentation the wine was matured in oak for an extended period of 20 months after which a 14 barrel assemblage was blended. Course filtration to the bottle ensured the wine remains true to its generous fruit nature created by prolonged and exceptional sunshine hours during and post-veraison. A wine which is showing grace while continuing to evolve in bottle.
