Lock & Worth is a small winery focused on small vineyard productions and making amazing wines at reasonable prices. They spend all of their money on their wines and not marketing or increasing sales. That's why you'll never see their wines at awards shows or being promoted, other than through us.
Coming from 2 acres planted in 1995. With Sandy soils and from the Naramata Bench. Grapes were gently de-stemmed with 5 days of skin contact. They were then basket pressed and Fermented in neutral French oak for 7 months. This is NOT what you may have come to expect from Okanagan Merlot. Light to medium in body, this is definitely not a big or heavy wine here. Despite the fact that this single vineyard produces amazing and serious fruit which could handle extended time in barrel they feel that the wine should highlight the inherent fruit qualities and not oak or heavy extraction. Bright, light ruby. Sweet red plums, savoury herbs, fine tannins and refreshing acidity. Medium bodied, supple and driven. This is unfined and unfiltered and is slightly hazy.
