Reviews and Ratings

Nick Onischuk - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

The Pelee Island Winery Meritage Vinedressers 2010 is quite the blend. Cherry, raspberry and tobacco on the nose. Flavours of cherry and raspberry make this full bodied qine quite enjoyable. Tasted October 7,2012 (86/100)
Ripe Fruit and shaved chocolate develops in the glass, the finish is rich, layered and long. Even though technology has enabled us to produce wine on a larger scale, the art of wine making itself has remained very much the same. It is still a combination of soil, weather coupled with the skill of the individual winemaker which influences the outcome of each variety and vintage.

This is why we want you to meet the people behind our wines. The vinedressers series highlights their best wines.

This unique wine blends Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Lemberger (known as Blaufränkisch in Austria) and Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium-deep ruby colour. Aromas suggest plum, cherry, potpourri, sweet red peppers and smoke. Layered flavours on the medium-full-bodied palate, with good intensity, and finishing in a flourish of smoky red pepper.
