Fielding Estate Winery Red Bordeaux Blend Meritage 2006

Member Review by John Andrews:

This has always been the star of Fielding for me. The wine has nice smokey aromas with lots of black fruit in the nose (black plums and blackberries). Great mouth feel with spice and dark fruit. Cab franc definitely plays a big role in this wine.

The Vineyards From their first small vintage in 2002, Fielding wines are made with meticulous care, crafted from grapes harvested from estate vineyards, which the family transformed from old peach and pear orchards. They chose to plant grapes most suited to the Beamsville Bench, considered an area of perfect soil and climate for producing superb varietals. Fielding’s two vineyards are tenderly cared for using environmentally friendly farming practices. The 20 acres lying on the Beamsville Bench are fully planted and also 40 acres near the Niagara Lakeshore are planted. The Fieldings believe that great wines start with the care in growing and harvesting of the crops. The Wines Great care is taken to create complex, classic wines from among the superb varietals that thrive in the Niagara terroir. Annual selections are made from available varietals and with passion and dedication they are turned into wines of extraordinary excellence. Fielding Estate produces wine only in small quantities to ensure the highest quality in every bottle. With emphasis on Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Syrah for the reds, and Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Gris for the whites, Fielding wines have achieved astounding success, setting the standard for years to come. The Fielding label is available by ordering online at www.fieldingwines.com for direct delivery, or by visiting the Wine Lodge. Fielding wines are also served at select Ontario restaurants; for a list of restaurants, please visit the website. Read less
