Dream 2016


2016 ~ 750ml
14.2% alc./vol.

Tasting Notes
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.

Winemaking Notes

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.

Wine and Food Pairing
Easily enjoyable on its own, or serve with cheese and charcuterie boards, lasagna, osso bucco, BBQ ribs or chateaubriand. For the vegetarians, hearty pasta dishes, mushroom risotto, stuffed peppers or Moroccan tagine.

Drinking beautifully, powerfully, now – especially after a lengthy decant. This wine will continue to age well in your cellar through to the year 2026
