Primarily Cab Franc with 27% Cab Sauv and 15% Merlot, this bounds frm the glass with kitchen spice, herbs, chocolate and mixed field berry aromas. It needs time to knit, but everything's there - great carpentry, deft balance, complexity and charm. Rich, ripe flavours of cherry and spiced black plum coat the palate, red and black currant with a solid tanin underpinning provide an aftertaste that's dry and elegant.

This blend of Merlot (58%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (42%) was carefully sourced from select Niagara Peninsula vineyards and spent 16 months in French oak barrels. On the nose this Merlot Cabernet entices you with aromas of berry compote, eucalyptus and charcoal. On the palate, this wine is medium-full, flavourful, vibrant and shows well-integrated tannins.

About Tawse Winery

Situated on the lower slopes of the Niagara Escarpment, Tawse is a family-owned organic winery. A life-long lover of wine, Burgundy in particular, founder Moray Tawse purchased the Cherry Avenue property in 2001 after realizing the great potential of the Niagara Escarpment as a word-class cool-climate wine region. In 2005, he opened his state-of-the-art winery in Vineland, complete with a six-level, gravity-flow design, geo-thermal system and a wetland bio-filter.

The inspiration for Moray’s eponymous Niagara property came from his love of Burgundian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Uniting traditional winemaking techniques with state-of-the-art technology, Tawse and the award-winning winemaking team of Paul Pender and Rene Van Ede, is dedicated to producing terroir-driven wines of exceptional elegance, depth and character.

At Tawse, winemaking begins in the vineyards. We proudly apply rigorous organic methods to every aspect of our production from grape-growing to winemaking and Ecocert seals appear on all wines made from our estate fruit.

Today, having acquired over 200 acres (5 vineyards) and being named Canadian Winery of the year in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2016, Tawse Winery now produces 30,000 cases of wine and has one of the largest portfolios of organic wines in the Niagara region.
