About this winery
Monster Vineyards is a boutique winery located on the Naramata Bench in the British Columbia's Okanagan Valley. The winery came to life in 2006 when the owners of Poplar Grove introduced this fun new line up of wines to the British Columbia market. Raising the bar for fruit-forward Okanagan wines, the Monster wines are fresh, fruity and ready to be set free upon release. Monster Vineyards is conveniently located at the gateway to the famous Naramata Bench wine touring route just down the road...
Made from predominantly Merlot grapes. The berries were hand picked at 23.74 °B and sorted in the vineyard. After destemming, the berries were hand sorted again, then crushed and held cold for four days. During fermentation hand plunging the must and judicious use of pumping over ensured optimum tannin extraction.
MMMMmmm Monster Merlot! Signature aromas of plum, all spice, and iris play in your nostrils. This fruit-forward Merlot attacks the palate with notes of ripe cherry and blueberry, with a rich and well-balanced finish. Pairs perfectly with lamb skewers and portobello mushroom burgers.
