Tightrope Winery Merlot 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaTightrope is the right name for this wine, one that treads a fine line of fruit and acidity. Naramata is a sweet spot for merlot, revealing its cooler, mineral, fruit side with blueberry, black raspberry, and dark plum. The textures are smooth, the tannins and alcohol in check, leaving an elegant, ready to drink red but with some complexity. A perfect simple chicken or pork wine.Tasted: 27 June 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 30.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Tightrope WineryDistributors: Vintage Corks Limited
