Reif Winery Gamay Cabernet Merlot 2019

Gamay Cabernet Merlot 2019

VQA Niagara Peninsula | 750ml


Vintage & Viticulture

While the season began with a wet cool spring, summer brought typical temperatures across Ontario. July was particularly warm and sunny with intense heat waves and high humidity. Early-ripening grape varieties escaped the wild weather of late fall and the unusual early cold snap in November. Harvest extended into early December, sometimes taking place in the snow.

Winemaker’s Notes

Wines were made individually and the final blend was crafted after wines completed malolactic fermentation. The fermentation and aging was done in large stainless steel vats and this was done to allow the fruit components to remain at the forefront of this wine. The blend consists of 46% Gamay Noir, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 21% Merlot.

Tasting Notes

Our ever popular off dry, easy drinking red blend has aromas of fresh cherries, raspberries and plums with a dash of pepper. On the palate, sweet, sweet cherries and a refreshing acidity. Try serving this chilled for added complexity and enjoyment. Pair with grilled pork burgers or beef kabobs with red pepper.
