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 fruit was a blend from 12 year old and 16 year old vines. Grapes were allowed to soak for 8 hours before pressing. After pressing the juice was clarified with flotation technology and the clean juice was inoculated with a selected yeast strain for Sauvignon Blanc. Fermentation was completed in 10 days and further aging was done in stainless steel.
Grapefruit, passion fruit, freshly cut grass and subtle gooseberry notes. The palate is fresh and crisp with white grapefruit and lime flavours complemented by a zesty citrus finish. Pair with Mountain Oak Wild Nettle Gouda made on a farm in Wilmot Township, near New Hamburg, Ontario maintaining highest standard of quality by only using fresh milk from our own dairy cows. The wild nettle is irrefutably ‘green’ and has an herbal edge and this,combined with the smooth creamy texture. Also excellent with Niagara Specialty Meat local Prosciutto Salami The spices are delicately balanced so to enhance the natural sweet flavours of the meat are a great contrast to the bright acidity of the wine.
