Initially a limited release, this wine has now joined the regular Cru International line-up!

The Wine

Meritage means "Bordeaux-style". This dry, medium-bodied wine opens on the nose with delicious aromas of red currant, cassis, vanilla, cigar box, and spices. On the palate, it unveils a round mouthfeel with polished tannins for a supported finish.

The Region

Recognized as the finest wine region in Canada, the Okanagan is a beautiful and expansive valley stretching over 250 km, where mother nature has created the ideal climate for viticulture. The lake that spans the valley helps to temper the summer heat. The Cascade and Coast Mountains create a rain shadow effect, resulting in the perfect growing conditions for grapes. The Okanagan is known for its wineries and fruit orchards and is surrounded by pine forests and provincial parks.

The Occasions

Enjoy with red wine braised beef with pomme purée, bison burgers with blue cheese, garlic lamp chops with chickpea purée, or triple cream cheese.
