While the season began with a wet cool spring, summer brought typical temperatures across Ontario. July was particularly warm and sunny with intense heat waves and high humidity. Early-ripening grape varieties escaped the wild weather of late fall and the unusual early cold snap in November. Harvest extended into early December, sometimes taking place in the snow. Clean ripe fruit was harvested from a two-acre vineyard block planted in 2006.
The fruit was allowed to soak for 36 hours in our closed press and then pressed juice was cleaned using our flotation pump and selected yeast was added. Fermentation was slow and cool and the wine remained on its lees for 6 months and the lees were stirred every month.
Medium-bodied and intensely aromatic with notes of honey, lychee, rose, and pear. The flavours carry through to a refreshingly dry, fruit-forward palate with great food-friendly acidity and a lingering finish. Try with your favourite curries or Chinese takeout.
