Savoury, complex, balance.
Owners of old Hill, the Gill family have been farming for thousands of years in the Punjab and when they moved to Canada in the 1980s continued to do so in the Okanagan Valley. Born in 2009, Gold Hill makes small lot estate wines from the Gill's 65-acres in the south Okanagan; 32 in Osoyoos and 24-acres on the Golden Mile (not part of the sub-GI).
Formed from the soils of Gold Hill's vineyard on the Golden Mile this Reserve Meritage blends classic Bordeaux varieties and is the estate's flagship wine.
Spicy wild berries and currents, soy sauce and prune, vanilla, licorice and mocha aromas roll onto a palate that is supple and balanced. Similar salty/umami flavours appear in the mouth with bitter cocoa, espresso, spice and muddled dark berries. It has complexity and depth, structure and balance; the tannins are chalky.
