Terralux Meritage 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis wine is well put together, and it begins with an enticing 60/24/12/4 blend of cabernet franc/merlot/cabernet sauvignon/malbec grown at S’milka Vista Vineyard in the Similkameen Valley. The nose is generous, mixing red (plums) and black fruits (blackcurrants) streaked in tobacco and dusted with fine dark chocolate. Rich bit balanced and shows some minerality throughout. The production is standard: indigenous yeast fermentation at ambient temperatures, gently pressed fruit with a traditional basket press, followed by an 11-month stay in French barriques.Tasted: 11 May 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
