VQA Niagara River | 750ml
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.
Grapes were harvested and allowed to remain on the skins for 24hrs in our closed press. This allows for more extracted notes of spice and lychee to be pulled from the skins. A light pressing and a cool ferment completed the wine.
Straw colour with fresh citrus, lychee and spice aromas and flavours. A crisp balanced, refreshing wine. Partner with shrimp, sushi, curries and vegetarian cuisine.
