Tasting Notes

Nk' Mip Cellars Mer'r'iym (pronounced Mur'-eem') meaning the marriage is the perfect union of varietals. It's all about  elegance, texture and length. Aromas are of blueberries, black currant, smoke and tobacco with with flavours of dark fruit and cherry leading into a lengthy structured finish.

 

Vineyard Notes
An unusually long and cold winter resulted in a later bud break – fully a month behind last year and a week or so behind a typical harvest. Wet and cool weather continued into late May when we saw our first spike of heat that pushed the vines towards flowering in early June. July and August were typically hot with virtually no precipitation. Fortunately in September the weather cooled significantly, allowing the fruit to hang for great flavour and phenolic ripeness. We began harvest on September 13th with Sauvignon Blanc but didn’t get back into it until the 29th when we picked the second component of our White Merriym - Semillon.
Production Notes
A blend of 42% Merlot. 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec each of the individual parcels were fermented separately and aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. After maturation we picked the best barrels from the superior lots to create the finished wine.
Food Pairing Notes
Beef Stroganoff with cremini and porcini mushrooms, roast leg of lamb with herbs, grilled eggplant parmesan, or enjoy with the following cheese suggestions; Romano, Roquefort or aged Provolone.
