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
The grapes were crushed and went through a 14-day warm maceration period. After alcoholic fermentation the must was lightly pressed and malolactic fermentation was completed in large stainless steel tanks.
Aromas of plum, red and black berries with a mineral note. Flavours of red berries and plum preceded by a soft texture. Balance of a refreshing acidity supported with silky tannins on the finish. Roasted red meat, aged cheese and pastas with red sauces.
