Here is the other half of the 10 acre Merlot vineyard at Intersection, made in the same way as it’s counterpart, the Silica Merlot. The only difference is the soil – in this case being alluvial soil. The Alluvia displays a more fruit-forward style, with rich, deep and explosive features. The wine also has a bright acidity from front to mid-palate and a long and very spicy finish. Winemaker Melissa Smits maintained a wine that isn’t too heavy despite the 14.9% alcohol, and also displays a healthy oak approach. On the nose I can sense blueberry jam, white raspberry, and vanilla, while the palate offers cassis, red cherry, raspberry and balsamic vinegar. The tannins are soft and round. This wine is in a great stage at the moment! (tasted 05/22). 226 cases produced.
