Terroir Collection, No.21 Splitrail 2013 Merlot

Terroir Collection, No.21 Splitrail 2013 Merlot

Our Splitrail Merlot hails from the eastern region of Osoyoos where some of the longest hangtime occurs.  This additional time on the vine gives the grapes a deep colour and intensity that translates into a robust wine.  French oak barrel aging provided additional depth and complexity in the extended finish.  This wine is enjoyable now, or cellar for the next 5-8 years.
