2014 Merlot-Malbec Image

2014 Merlot-Malbec

Two of the classic Bordeaux varieties in an exciting pairing for Hillside.  Spiced mocha jumps out of the glass on the first sniff—then a hint of orange rind mingles with the fresh dark fruits.  On the palate, the fine-grained tannins lead into a generous and juicy finish.

Tasting Notes

Winemaker Notes
Sourced from a warm Naramata site above the lake, the malbec was given a 5 day cold soak and fermented with 18 days extended skin contact. Aged in new and older French and American oak, then blended with Naramata Bench merlot. Final blend is 45% malbec with 11 months barrel maturation in French and American oak. Bottled under screw cap to ensure the integrity of freshness and flavour.
