Lock & Worth Merlot Grey Label 2018

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom a biodynamically farmed vineyard in Oliver, this new Grey label merlot is for the export market and their Naramata tasting room only. Whole berry picked and on skins for three days, this was fermented in stainless before three months in old wood. After a swing of reduction, this veers into sherry vinegar, wet meadow herbs, light cassis, plum, tart blackcurrant and light leather, all seasoned with ample salts and camp smoke. Best with a chill.Tasted: 31 July 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 22.00 winery direct Producer: Lock & WorthDistributors: Storied Wines & Spirits
