1995 Tesoro

VQA Niagara Peninsula | 750ml

Winemaker’s Notes

Reif Estate has created an outstanding 1995 Meritage wine. Known as Ontario's vintage of the century, many great wines were made, but non better than Tesoro! Having a romantic connotation, Tesoro means "my treasure" and the wine is one of the many treasures that you can find at Reif Estate.

Tasting Notes

Due to the long aging time, this has allowed the wine to develop some intense aromas including chocolate, leather, and smoky tobacco. Sweet oaky tannins dominate the mouth feel followed by flavours of blackcurrant and peppers. The finish is long, elegant, and sexy. Great structure and body.
