Sauvignon Blanc 2017

VQA Niagara River


Vintage & Viticulture

A cool wet summer originally gave us some concerns about the vintage but patience was rewarded with a hot dry harvest season that allowed grapes to ripen fully.

Winemaker’s Notes

The fruit was a blend from 12 year old and 16 year old vines. Grapes were allowed to soak for 8 hours before pressing. After pressing the juice was clarified with flotation technology and the clean juice was inoculated with a selected yeast strain for Sauvignon Blanc. Fermentation was completed in 10 days and further aging was done in stainless steel.

Tasting Notes

Grapefruit, passion fruit, freshly cut grass and subtle gooseberry notes. The palate is fresh and crisp with white grapefruit and lime flavours complemented by a zesty citrus finish.

"A refreshing and vibrant Niagara Sauvignon Blanc with aromas of melon and lime. Medium-bodied and mouth-watering. Perfect for seafood and shellfish. Food pairings: scallop ravioli, breaded chicken with lemon beurre blanc."

Natalie Maclean

SCORE 88/100 "Textbook Sauvignon Blanc with a nose of grapefruit, kiwi, subtle tropical fruits and hints of fresh-cut-grass and herbs."
