Tasting Notes

A stunning red blend from the moderately warm summer of 2013. This Meritage is a "return to roots" style inspired by the 2010 vintage. A blend of 34% Redstone Vineyard Merlot, 33% Redstone Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Redstone Vineyard Cabernet Franc. This estate wine is full bodied with supple tannins and structure that would benefit from decanting before serving, but is highly approachable in its relative youth. Aromas of cassis, plum, basket fruits and sweet wood are prevalent on the nose. The palate is alive with notes of black fruit, blueberries and tart raspberries and are soon followed by hints of savoriness.

The Producer

Redstone Winery

In his quest to explore terroir, Moray Tawse leaves no stone unturned. First came his namesake winery in Vineland, ON. Then it was Marchand-Tawse and Domaine Tawse in Burgundy. And now Redstone Winery, in Beamsville, ON.

Moray purchased the Lincoln Lakeshore property, formerly Thomas and Vaughan Estate Winery, in 2009, citing that it was an opportunity to explore a different terroir that he simply couldn’t pass up. Inspired by the red dust which covered everything, including his boots, the first time he strolled the vineyard, he named the new winery Redstone, for its intensely red clay soil and large stones.

The 38-acre estate vineyard, farmed organically, is perfect for maturing late-ripening varietals including Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. There is also Pinot Gris on the property. Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay from recently acquired Limestone vineyard will round out the estate portfolio.

After working closely with the winemakers for over four years, Jessica Otting took on the Assistant Winemaker role in 2018, and as of 2020 assumed the role of Winemaker for both Tawse and Redstone Winery.
