Vintage & Viticulture

A slow start to the season with a cool spring but summer brought hot dry weather perfect for grape growing. Mother Nature however turned the tables on winemakers in Ontario with a wet humid fall. Harvest was quick in an effort to pick fruit before rains affected the quality of grapes.

Winemaker’s Notes

This edition of the blend is 80% Shiraz and 20% Pinot Noir. The grapes were hand harvested and 100% of the Pinot Noir and 20% of the Shiraz was allowed to dry in our kilns for 3 weeks. The grapes were crushed and fermented on skins for 14 days. After pressing, the wine was moved into new and old French barriques, where the wine completed it’s alcoholic and malolactic fermentation.

Tasting Notes

Silky tannins and dark berry fruit on this well-structured wine create a long smooth finish. A balanced acidity interplays with black pepper, spice, black cherry, blackberry and chocolate notes. Good for grilled meats, roasts, especially lamb and hearty stews. Also a nice evening companion when paired with a sharp cheese or dark chocolate.
