"With the creation of this wine, Adirondack Winery is a proud member of the National Meritage Alliance. Meritage is an invented word that combines ""merit"" and ""heritage"" - reflecting the quality of the grapes and the ancient art of blending wine. Meritage wines are handcrafted red or white wines blended from the ""noble"" Bordeaux grape varieties. A Meritage wine is considered to be the very best of the vintage. Blending is the personal expression of the winemaker's vision, a combination of skill and intuition that unites the elements of the winemaking process to create a work of art. It is the magic that gifted winemakers use to create wines of intrigue and enchantment."
While we love savoring this wine on its own, our Meritage makes a great match for a charred burger with gruyere cheese, mushrooms and onions. Think rich meats with earthy, nutty flavors and you will have an excellent meal. Wood-fired pizza and tomato-based pasta dishes with rich spices or meat sauces also pair well!
