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

The fermentation lasted a typical 10 days and the wine underwent 100% malolactic conversion. It was aged in a mix of stainless steel and oak barriques. The final cuvee consisted of 70% stainless aged and 30% barriques aged.

Tasting Notes

This wine offers aromas and flavours of apple, pear with nuances of citrus as well as vanilla notes due to ageing in oak. The texture is creamy with a nice balanced acidity. Pair with salmon, crab, chicken and shrimp with cream sauces and patés.
