2013 La Flamme Rouge

Winemaker's Notes

Le Vieux Pin has been a major supporter and an official sponsor of Granfondo Okanagan since inception five years ago. To Commemorate this “wood Anniversary”, we have crafted a single vineyard, single varietal Merlot for the riders to celebrate with.

Hand picked, hand sorted, fermented in small batches and aged in 100% neutral french oak barrels, this limited run wine (meagre 69 cases made) celebrated the expression of Merlot as a noble variety in our region of South Okanagan.

Pairings

While it is perfectly fine to drink this Merlot on its own, it is at the dinner table with food that this wine will shine bright. Pair with a variety of BBQ red meat, cheese and casual favourites.

Region:Osoyoos Lake District
Production:69 cases
Alcohol:14.2%
Aging:13 months in small batches in 100% neutral French Oak barrels
