Mercator En Cave Red 2012
This product is currently sold out.
Mercator Vineyards is a 40-acre site, situated on a bluff directly overlooking the Acadian Dykelands. It is influenced by the nearby Minas Basin, with its rising and falling tides. Immense volumes of relatively cold water move in and out of the Basin on a daily basis, bringing with it cool breezes that help keep Mercator's vineyards cool, our grapes healthy and to help in the retention of aromatics and acidity that develop in the grapes throughout the growing season.
Pinot Noir grapes shine through in this red, blended with classic Nova Scotia red grapes, exhibiting black cherry, raspberry and hints of violet, with notes of oak and spice.
Light acidity, supple fruit and soft tannins make this delightful on its own or paired with salmon, venison or mushroom risotto.
Barrel aged one year and bottle aged for four years, this wine is drinking well now and will cellar for several more years.
