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.
After harvest, grapes were crushed and pressed, selected yeast was used for the fermentation. The fermentation was kept around 12 degrees Celsius to maintain aromatics and crisp acidity. The fermentation was completed in 11 days and further aged in stainless steel tanks. This variety is only grown in a few vineyards in Niagara but it continues to impress us as the vines age.
Gracious floral and herbs blended with flavours of apple, honey, grapefruit with a mineral feel. Rich minerality and refreshing apple juice finish. Pair with shellfish, scallops, calamari, white fish such as sole or tilapia and also great for vegetarian dishes.
