Hillside Winery

2013 Merlot Malbec

2013 Merlot Malbec

Two classic Bordeaux varieties create an exciting new pairing for Hillside.  Blueberry tea jumps out of the glass on the sniff—then a hint of orange rind to mingle with the fresh dark fruits.  On the palate, the fine-grained tannins lead to a generous and juicy finish.

Tasting Notes
Two classic Bordeaux varieties create an exciting new pairing for Hillside. Blueberry tea jumps out of the glass on the sniff then a hint of orange rind to mingle with the fresh dark fruits. On the palate, the fine-grained tannins lead to a generous and juicy finish.
Production Notes
Sourced from a warm Naramata site above the lake, the Malbec was given a 7 day cold soak and fermented with 21 days extended skin contact. Aged in new and older French and American oak, then blended with Naramata Bench Merlot. Final blend is 44% Malbec with 11 months barrel maturation in French and American oak.
Food Pairing Notes
Beautiful with grilled anything! Beef, chicken, pork, veggies...
