Introducing thew new Dream 2016 -one of our most popular red wines from a truly great Niagara vintage!
2016 ~ 750ml
This Merlot dominant Bordeaux blend has a ripe, fruit forward profile. Aromas of black cherry, plum, blueberry, blackcurrant and subtle vanilla bean are layered on the nose. The palate has a juicy tannin structure with ripe and rich flavours to echo the aromas. Lots of complexity and a lengthy, elegant finish.
Merlot 45% ● Cabernet Sauvignon 34% ● Cabernet Franc 15% ● Petit Verdot 6%
The 2016 vintage was hot and sunny, the vines produced fruit with ripe flavours and lower acidity… a great Niagara vintage! The grapes were harvested mid-October to mid-November with a portion (17%) set aside to dry for 100 days in the Appassimento method. The wine was then aged 16 months in French, American and Hungarian oak barrels.
