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.
Ripe Fruit was crushed and fermented on the skins individually. Fermentation on the skins lasted 15 days then the must was pressed and malolactic fermentation was done in stainless steel tanks.
A very fruit forward Cabernet with minimal oak influences and soft ripe tannins gives us a medium body food friendly wine. The aromas are rich with layers of red and black berry fruit. On the palate, raspberries, cherries, sweet black berry and touch of cassis with subtle spice notes. Goes great with pasta dishes, lasagna, hamburgers and grilled foods.
Brix At Harvest:20.5
Release Date:June 1, 2019
