2018 Gjoa's Vineyard Merlot

2018 Gjoa's Vineyard Merlot
90 Points - DJ Kearney

Gjoa’s vineyard, situated just below our winery, was established 27 years ago.  These mature vines produce fruit which stands out with deep plum and mocha aromas and a savoury note to the palate, lending sophistication to the finish. So fun to taste and compare with our Dickinson Vineyard Merlot.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This elegant wine shows dark fruits, with meaty umami undertones, followed by silky fine-grained tannins. So fun to taste and compare with our Hidden Valley Merlot or Dickinson Vineyard Merlot!

Winemaker Notes
Gjoa's Vineyard is an older vineyard (planted 1989) on Naramata Road "below the road", giving the fruit great complexity due to its interesting lacustrine soils. A moderate summer created fruit with bright flavours and provided the hang-time for nicely ripened tannins. The super-long cold soak - 2 full weeks! - led to mid-palate flavour intensity, and the extended maceration created optimum tannin presence.
