This Oliver farm estate has started a fascinating study: bottling two different Merlot wines from two highly diverse soil types in one vineyard. Intersection Merlot Silica comes from the sandy vineyard section, where the thin silica layer strains the vines, resulting in stronger acid and tannin structure in the fruit. Upon harvest, the Silica is treated to a lengthy fermentation followed by ageing in tight-grained French oak casks, of which only 30% are new. A vibrant and concentrated red fruit nose leads into luxurious raspberry torte on the palate with a sleek finish. Excellent structure formed by an intermingling of crisp underlying acidity and full, firm tannins. Unfiltered and made with as little manipulation as possible, this is a powerful and robust wine for a rack of lamb or venison stew. I included this bottle in the 3rd Annual Judgment of B.C. competition, and it performed very strongly in a field of top international Merlot wines. This grape is the most planted red in our province, and wines like Intersection Silica reveal Merlot’s true potential.
