Pinot Noir


2010 Pinot Noir VQA Ontario         

Our 2010 Pinot Noir is made from a blend of grapes from Prince Edward County (60%) (including our own) and from the Lincoln Lakeshore sub-appellation of the Niagara Peninsula (40%). The County grapes provide the bright fruit and minerality, while the Niagara fruit adds complexity to the mid palate and some additional tannins to provide for a long finish. This wine presents with aromas of cherry and caramel followed by fruit flavours of dark cherry and pomegranate in the mouth. This is carried through to an elegant and extended balance of acidity, minerality and tannin. A Burgundian style Pinot with the characteristic stamp of Prince Edward County.

Cabernet Franc



2010 Cabernet Franc VQA Prince Edward County 


This wine was made from 100% Prince Edward County grapes obtained from two different vineyards in the County. It features luscious deep blackberry and cherry flavours with impeccably balanced acidity and tannins, giving a beautiful long finish.

Comments from wine critics include:

"This is a very pretty, light Cabernet Franc with a wonderful sense of purity. Love the raspberry-pomegranate, slightly floral notes, with tobacco and just a bit of farmyard in the background. It's a bit fleshy but still firm on the finish, with very good length. Lovely minerality and sense of refinement. 90 points." ~ David Lawrason

"The 2010 vintage was exceptional in P.E.C. By blending grapes from young County vines with more mature lots from a nearby Casa-Dea estate, owner Colin Stanners has made one of the finest Ontario cab francs to date. It's bright with raspberry-pomegranate flavours and floral and tobacco nuances. Lovely minerality on the finish. 91 Points. ~ Toronto Life, July 2012


"Cabernet Franc that thinks it's a Pinot. Lots of vitality, some earthiness but mainly about seduction. Just lovely." ~ Billy Munnelly (Billy's Best Bottles)

One of Billy’s best picks from the Terroir wine festival in Prince Edward County held May 26th, 2012. See http://www.winefox.ca/articles/billys-best-bottles-under-25-from-prince-edward-county/

2012 Chardonnay VQA Prince Edward County  


This Chardonnay was made from grapes from our low yielding estate vineyard, which is full of fractured limestone, providing very high quality fruit. The wine was partially barrel fermented in local Ontario oak and has pleasing acidity and minerality underlying bright apple, citrus and honey flavours. The fruit flavours have a richness giving the wine both sensuality and edge and leading to a beautifully balanced finish. This is one of our best chardonnays. At 55 cases, this is a very limited release which is likely to sell out pretty quickly.
