Bartier Bros. Merlot Cerqueira Vineyard 2019

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Bartier Merlot specializes in the purity of fruit, showing ripe, dark cherry, blueberry, and an overall juicy character that intrigues. Tannins are moderate as they disappear into a long, savoury, saline, bright Okanagan finish. The wine spends 14 weeks in neutral French oak barrels, and it is all the better for it. Drink or cellar you won’t be disappointed. The fruit is farmed from the home Cerqueira Vineyard on the Black Sage Terrace.Tasted: 26 March 2021Tasted by: Prices:
