We may be brave and plant more, but for now this is the last Merlot produced in the Rockway Vineyards. Merlot is very sensitive to the cold, but when it produces, the wines are stunning.
Colour is deep ruby. Layered aromas of blueberry, leather and spice with nuances of French oak. Palate is rich and velvety with polished tannins and acidity to keep the wine fresh. Flavours of dark berry fruits, tobacco and savoury spice kissed by fine French oak. Medium+ finish.
Rockway Vineyards' 2013 Small Lot Merlot has proudly won the following awards:
Silver Medal, Finger Lakes International Wine Competition
