Meritage is a regulated term for wines made from two or more "noble" Bordeaux grape varieties (no single variety can make up more than 90% of the blend). The 2018 vintage is a blend of 63% Cabernet Franc, 25% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and to give it a local twist, the wine is aged exclusively in Canadian oak barrels.
