Fourth generation family farmer and vintner Gina Fernandes Harfman is crafting collectible wines from the best South Okanagan vineyards. In a vintage where a wine reveals itself as most special, and highest quality, Gina assigns this wine to her Family Collection -- as she did with the 2018 Meritage.
This complex, vivid blend is dominated by Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and bursts with notes of black currant, raspberry, cherry, and blackberry. Hints of violet, clove, oak, leather, vanilla and baking spices add layers and depth, while the firm, supple tannins are balanced by fresh acidity.
Those who treasured our 2013 Bordeaux Blend will love the cuvée of the 2018 Meritage. The 2013s are drinking beautifully in 2021, showing how well rewarded patient collectors become. 2018 Meritage is a marriage of our Home Vineyard Merlot and Bordelais varietals from family and treasured growing partners, as follows: 51% Merlot (Home Vineyard, Oliver), 21% Cabernet Sauvignon (Harfman Family Vineyard, Osoyoos), 14% Cabernet Franc (Farinha Vineyard, Osoyoos), 11% Malbec (Gablemann Vineyard, Oliver), 3% Petit Verdot (Harfman Family Vineyard, Osoyoos).
Serve this beguiling beauty with roast beef, grilled lamb chops, Osso Buco, or aged, hard cheeses.
Unfiltered, will contain sediment. Cellar 2026-2030. Only 196 cases produced.
At her woman-owned and run Nostalgia Wines, Gina invites you to make moments with what she has captured in the bottle, and create tomorrow’s memories.
