Our Showcase Right Hand Side Merlot 2014 was made with very limited production from the acclaimed Clark Farm vineyard in Niagara-on-the-Lake. This smooth, full-bodied red showcases flavours of berries, cherry, plum, spice and oak notes. Enjoy now through 2024; decanting is recommended if drinking through 2018.
VINEYARD: We plant three different Merlot clones in our vineyard and the grapes on the right side consistently do the best because the soil there is the rockiest. That extra minerality gives us a wine that’s spicy and smoky, and rich in dark red berry flavours. For this, the wine bears the moniker Right Hand Side (RHS) Merlot.
WINEMAKING: Aged 18 months in 90% French/10% American oak with malolactic fermentation and minimal filtration. Extensive bottle aging ensures a silky mouthfeel, great structure, and aging potential.
WINE PROFILE: Bright purple garnet colour with an aromatic bouquet of cedar, toasty oak, cinnamon and spice, along with ripe fruit notes of strawberry and currant. This full-bodied Merlot shows firm tannins, good structure, moderate acidity and great aging potential. Flavours of ripe dark red berries, cherry and plum are complemented by warm spice and oak notes. The lingering finish reveals notes of juicy red berries, spice and black tea.
FOOD PAIRINGS: Serve with duck breast in a rich Merlot reduction; potato and mushroom gratin; grilled porterhouse steak with sautéed mushrooms; prime rib with roasted root vegetables; beef tenderloin; two year old Canadian cheddar; beef stew; roast pheasant.
