"Voluptuous texture...the finish lingers."

Golden Mile Bench
100% estate grown Merlot from Block A on Arise Bench
Matured for 16 months in a a combination of new (50%) and 1-year old (50%) French oak barrels.
Generous aromas of ripe black plum and violets are complemented by subtle nutmeg and cinnamon. The dense, plush palate reflects the gravel minerality of Arise Bench with juicy wild blackberry flavours and integrated toasted oak. Elegant and well-structured, the finish is long and pronounced.
Braised veal cheeks with red wine reduction; charcoal grilled pork loin with black garlic vinaigrette and Okanagan prune plums
