Premium organic Merlot grown in Kaleden and Okanagan Falls from two vineyards that face each other across Skaha Lake give a lush wine with concentrated intensity.
Aromas of spiced blue fruit and vanilla are followed by intense flavours of blueberry, spicy plum, violet and cocoa. Rich and powerful with fine tannins and fresh acidity. 100% aged in neutral French and American oak barrels for 31 months. Unfined and unfiltered.
The art created exclusively for this label is Ferruginous Hawk (2013) by Robert Bateman. Although rare, ferruginous hawks may be seen in the Okanagan feeding on small mammals, reptiles, and grasshoppers that populate the grasslands ecological system in which our vineyards are located. They are solitary birds except when migrating.
Summerhill is proud to donate a portion of the price of this wine to fund the Bateman Foundation's pro-nature initiatives.
