Niche Wine Co. Merlot 2020

Covert Farms Family Estate Rosé wine
A friendly Merlot from British Columbia's Okanagan Valley, where James and Joanna Schlosser created Niche Wine Co. in 2011. While the estate is situated in the hills of West Kelowna, the grapes for this wine come from a vineyard in the heart of the South Okanagan between Oliver and Osoyoos, a mere 100 meters southwest of Okanagan Lake. Prominent raspberry jam and black cherry fill the glass, with equal intensity of red fruit on the palate. A nice touch of acidity beckons for a bit more weight to dance with, but it suits just fine for a casual weekday bbq. Tasted March 2022.
Process: Aged in 25% new French Oak for 10 months.
