Stouck Family Strikes Again – Silver Medal at the 2019 National Wine Awards
The Stouck family is one of the pillars of our community. They are the kind of people that you want on your side…as your neighbours, your friends and as your partners in anything you may do. Why? Integrity. Plain and simple. When you have integrity, it follows through in everything you do.
The Stouck family farm in Lincoln Lakeshore Beamsville is nothing less than a shining example of their commitment and long-term thinking; keeping the farm in the family for over six generations has only been the first step. On the farm, Dan Stouck, our full-time Assistant Winemaker ensures that his family vineyard is a jewel amongst the region’s unique sites. Here, grape varieties are expertly matched to the vineyard’s micro-climate consistently yielding exceptional fruit year after year. In our winery, Dan follows his grapes every step of the way to ensure that it results in limited, hand-crafted wines that proudly bear his family name.
The 2016 vintage was undoubtably a stellar opportunity to produce something very special and this Meritage blend has the Stouck signature of outstanding character! Crafted from a 50/50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, you will be impressed by its remarkable ability to be both approachable and full of intensity… just like a Stouck!
In the Glass…
“The bright juiciness of Niagara fruit is delectably apparent here with flavours of plum, red and black cherry along with a touch of pomegranate. Notes of graphite and iron add further sophistication and complexity to the palate. Excellent value.”
