Description

Red Tractor Cabernet Merlot celebrates the vineyards of the Niagara Peninsula and the growers that have shaped our landscape. Harvested from several premium vineyards across the Niagara Peninsula- grapes were immediately crushed at the time of harvest and diverted to tank for a four day cold soak. Carefully fermented at warm temperatures and allowed to develop in barrel for 12 months. Our 2019 Cabernet Merlot is a testament to the agebility of Ontario hand-crafted red wines.

Nose

Complex, elegant nose (like mine!) Black fruit aromas lead the way, along with wood spice and some earthy old-world rusticity.

Mouth

Medium-bodied, with tannins that soothe you rather than smother you.

Winemaking Notes

At Creekside, we have an old Massey Harris tractor that serves as a symbol of the daily regimen of hard work required to grow grapes. Our growers harvested this premium fruit from vineyards across the Niagara Peninsula and our winemaker crushed the red fruit to tank for a 4-day cold soak before inoculating with yeast. Fermented at warm temperatures in tank and then aged in barrels for 12 months. A strong and powerful red blend.
