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.
This Shiraz was fermented and aged in stainless steel only, showcasing true varietal characteristics. Lighter in body and style but with excellent complexity on the palate.
An elegant medium-bodied red wine with plum and raspberry aromas. Great structure on the palate with soft notes of black pepper. Pair with grilled vegetable pizza or pink peppercorn crusted pork tenderloin.
