Growing Conditions

This vineyard, originally a fruit orchard, has been farmed organically for more than 40 years with soils that are high in nutrients and quite porous. The west side vineyard location of our Whispering Hill Organic Merlot results in a significant amount of morning sun exposure, giving way to the shade by afternoon. This leads to late ripening fruit that is more delicate and intensely flavourful.

15 months 100% French Oak, 20% new

Harvest

Date: Late October 2013

Nose

Sleek and fleshy with black cherry and red plum aromas.

Well-structured flavours of red currant, blueberries, cinnamon, mocha, and a hint of earth.
