Milepost Merlot 2021

A bright, energetic, and flavourful Merlot.

Our 10.5 acre vineyard is over 50% Merlot, and the Milepost has become another great expression of it, truly showcasing the "intersection" of styles, soils and techniques to show the variety that Merlot has to offer. This wine is from an exemplary year in the Okanagan, with a long, sunny and frost-free fall following a beautifully sunny and hot summer. Using minimal oak and encouraging expression of the grapes, the result is a bright, fruity Merlot that's ready to drink right away. It's become a favourite of staff and customers alike!

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Deep burgundy to a cherry-red rim, nice and clean. Nose shows red currant, red licorice and cranberry on the nose, a hint of toastiness and bramble fruit. Palate has good structure, dry with nice acidity. Finishes with spice and heat, but this might be because of the elevated alcohol level.
Production Notes
Harvested October 2, 2020, very early for Merlot and Milepost in general. 24 h soak before yeasting, then 4 weeks on the skins with twice-daily pumpovers. Pressed in November to neutral French oak. Minimal racking and SO2 adjustment, 12 months in barrel. Total production: 460 cases.
Food Pairing Notes
A great value bottle which will match well to grilled flank steak and lamb shoulder
