Tasting Notes

A Merlot dominant blend that incorporates Frontenac Noir for added aromatic complexity, plus Cabernet Sauvignon for length and structure. Like all Monte Creek wines this fruit was 100% hand sorted. Partial Wild ferment added complexity and interest. It is lightly oaked with the majority of the blend in large french oak tanks for 9 months and the remainder in barrel. Some of the malolatic fermentation was delayed until spring in order to enchance tanning evolution and colour stability. Designed to be drinkable now and to highlight the bright fruit, it is also dry with medium to medium plus acidity to keep it food friendly.
