Solstice Reserve 2015

Background
The 2015 Solstice Reserve is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Zweigelt grown in Suncrest Vineyard and Ritchie Vineyard, both located in Okanagan Centre. This wine reflects its origins through low yields in the vineyard,
minimal handling and slow maturation techniques. It is aged in French and American oak barrels for 18
months and only the best barrels are selected for the final blend. Solstice Reserve reflects both the essence of
our unique surroundings and our commitment to quality.

Tasting Notes
Rich, dark cherry and plum aromas with subtle notes of vanilla, coffee and dark chocolate.
The palate is full-bodied and generous, providing plenty of ripe fruit through to the finish.
This unique and age-worthy blend is our signature red wine.

Food Pairing Suggestions
A wine that takes its time to show its best also deserves the same of its food. It's best with
grilled red meats, roasts or hearty stews.
