The second vintage of Wild Goose Horizon Meritage Blend wins Gold at the 2014 BC Wine Awards; it was the only Meritage Blend to win a Gold at the competition. Winemaker Hagen Kruger confirms, “This is an outstanding achievement for Wild Goose. We’re thrilled that our meritage blend is gaining recognition in this category.” The Red Horizon Meritage is made in a traditional style blending Merlot Reserve (made from 100% free run juice), Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot. Earlier this year Wild Goose Winery became a member of the Meritage Alliance based in Calistoga, California. The Meritage Alliance is an association formed to identify and promote handcrafted wines blended from the traditional “noble” Bordeaux varieties.
Wild Goose also took home a Gold for the Classic Pinot Gris and Silver for the Autumn Gold and Mystic River Pinot Blanc as well as several Bronze medals. Visit the BC Wine Awards for a complete list of winners.
