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.
This lot of Pinot was harvested from a four-acre vineyard block planted in 1987. The wine was aged for six months in older French and Hungarian barriques after fermentation and then aged in stainless another six months. This allowed the tannins to soften and the fruit to open up.
Light and dark red fruit aromas on the nose with cherry, rosemary and black pepper notes. A firm acidity on the palate makes this an excellent food wine. A natural match with lamb, game and veal or serve chilled with salmon steaks and don’t forget to season with rosemary and black pepper for a perfect match.
