Niche Wine Company Merlot 2019

This Merlot was sourced from a vineyard located in the heart of the South Okanagan between Oliver and Osoyoos. The grapes are situated on the western side of the valley and 100 meters south west of lake water. This unique microclimate is home to some serious heat with vineyard temperatures hitting 40C on the regular. These grapes were cared for with the same sustainable practices as our estate Farm and were harvested on a beautiful sunny morning in the second week of October.

Fruit forward is almost an understatement. This Merlot is all raspberry jam and Black cherry on the nose and delivers even more raspberry and a blast of plum on the palate. The balanced acidity of this wine makes it super food-friendly and we love it with pizza, pork and pasta of any kind.
