2010 Equinoxe Merlot 3L
Our Équinoxe Merlot is sourced from a specific block of 18-year-old vines on the south end of the Golden Mile.Since 2005 (the first vintage of this wine) the wines resulting from this special vineyard show great flavour intensity and firm tannins, regardless of the vintage. Morning sun and afternoon shade allows the grapes to retain acidity that is harmonious and keeps the wine from being flat or overbearing. The nose dances with a myriad of nuances and flavours and the palate highlights plum and blackberry with a very long finish of espresso and mocha. This is a truly impressive wine.The caliber of fruit and style of winemaking creates a wine that should age gracefully for 10+ years.
Game meat roast, short ribs braised in stout & peaty whiskey bring the most out of this wine.
