The fruit for our 2015 Ravine Meritage comes from growers across the Niagara Peninsula as well as our very own estate. This blend is made up of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc and 25% Merlot. Each varietal is fermented and aged separately in French Oak barrels to preserve their individual characteristics. Our Winemaker then meticulously blends all 3 wines together in order to find the perfect balance in flavour, aroma and complexity.
