Ontario Reviews

Peller Estates 2015 Merlot, Signature Series

After the harsh winters 13/14 & 14/15 everyone expected Merlot to be done in Ontario - but what did survive were tough vines, those with staying power and the will to live - and thus better Merlot in Ontario was born: this fruit driven affair spent 18 months in French oak and went through full malolactic fermentation … blueberry, black cherry, and mocha lead the charge with hints of floral and cigar box - there’s some real grip and grit coming through on the finish, so this one needs 2-3 years to mellow and become the drink you really want … this one is bound for elegance 2021-2029.  Price: $48.95 - Rating: **** ½
