Bartier Bros. Cerqueira Vineyard Merlot Okanagan Valley 2015

I expect this label will not be imported into Australia, but it shows what is being done with merlot elsewhere - in this case, the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia. It's a delicious rendition of the variety. In the glass, there are aromatics of chocolate and red berries. The palate is pure fruited, balanced and textured. Bottled unfined and a native yeast fermentation. Few cases made. Rating: Good to Very Good. Abv: 14.4%. Price: $20.
