Vintage & Viticulture

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.

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.
