Reif Winery Baco Noir 2016

Baco Noir 2016

VQA Ontario


Vintage & Viticulture

Mild winter was greatly welcomed after the harsh winters of previous years. Spring weather was quite varied but in the end was average. By mid may the tone had been set for a warm dry season. Timely irrigation and canopy management played critical roles in ensuring grapes could uptake all the required nutrients from the soil and ripen fully. Fall continued with the warm dry pattern that made for a great year.

Winemaker’s Notes

Our Baco Noir was harvested on Sept. 15th from vines ranging in age from 12 – 25 years. The grapes were crushed and fermented on the skins for 8 days. The wine was aged in older American oak for 5 months to highlight the native fruit characteristics of this wine.

Tasting Notes

The flavours are layered with sweet plum, black cherry with a slight note of leather and dark chocolate. A balanced acidity to dark fruit with lingering fruit tannins on the finish. Great for anything barbecued from grilled red meats to juicy hamburgers. Beef stew and hearty pastas with red sauce will be great options for fall and winter dining.
