Tasting Notes

The Serluca Family Vineyard plays an important role in the Creekside red wine portfolio, and the time has come to give it center stage with this single vineyard bottling of Merlot. This is a rich and intense wine with gobs of red berry fruit, and plum on the nose. The palate medium bodied with a silky texture and juicy red fruit and chocolate flavours, ending with hints of spice. Enjoy now or hold on for a few more years.

Technical Notes

The grapes were crushed and given a 3 day cold soaked in stainless steel prior to fermentation. The wine was put into a mix of older 57% American oak barrels and 43% French oak barrels. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel followed by 19 months aging on the lees. The wine was blended and then bottled June 24, 2015
