Pinot Noir

   
     

2014 Pinot Noir VQA Prince Edward County           NEW RELEASE

   

The grapes used to make our 2014 County Pinot Noir were 83% from our estate vineyard and 17% from a nearby vineyard in the County. 2014 was a great vintage, as the weather conditions gave us slow, steady ripening throughout the season, with a beautiful September to develop concentrated flavours in the grapes. Our traditional approach with minimal handling in the winery has resulted in a wine that reflects the County terroir – intense and bright cherry and blackberry flavours, good minerality and finely balanced acidity. Its complexity allows for pairing with many foods, from salmon and cheese soufflé to lamb or duck.

2012 Pinot Noir VQA Four Mile Creek

   

An excellent Pinot made from grapes from the same single vineyard that provided grapes for the 2011 Four Mile Creek Pinot. 2012 was a warmer, drier year than 2011, however, and this wine reflects this difference in that the fruit flavours, though similar, are stronger leading to a beautiful long finish of blended acidity and smooth tannins. Again the overall balance of the wine is excellent giving a highly enjoyable wine.

Cabernet Franc

   
     

2013 Cabernet Franc VQA Prince Edward County

   

This wine was made with grapes from a single vineyard in Prince Edward County and follows the style established in our 2010 and 2012 Cab Franc wines with rich complex fruit followed by an exceptionally deep, satisfying and long lasting tannic finish. In this case the fruit has overtones of cherry and pomegranite and the balance of the fruit with the natural acidity and complex tannins in the finish is outstanding. Our winemaker, Colin, feels that this is the best Cab Franc he has ever made and, judging from initial reactions of varied tasters, it seems that he is right! This wine sold out in record time!

Chardonnay

   

2014 Chardonnay VQA Prince Edward County           NEW RELEASE

   

2014 is one of our favourite vintages to date, as the weather conditions were ideal for steady ripening during the summer, followed by a warm day/cool night Fall pattern allowing the grapes to develop concentrated and complex flavours. The wine was barrel fermented in French Burgundian oak and one barrel of Canadian oak, and has pleasing acidity and minerality underlying bright apple, citrus and vanilla flavours. Malolactic fermentation was partially completed, giving a nice balance of butteriness with freshness and acidity.

 

This wine has enjoyed unbridled praise from several wine critics including John Szabo. He wrote: “There's a marvellously stony, reductive, Puligny-like (Burgundian) pure expression of limestone in this chardonnay, with no holds barred and no concessions made to easy commercial appeal. The palate is tight, perhaps even with a touch of residual sugar, but it works here in the rivetingly acid milieu….. Distinctive, and very promising for the future of this site.”

2013 Chardonnay VQA Four Mile Creek

   

A beautiful chardonnay made from another single vineyard in the Four Mile Creek sub-appellation of Niagara and managed by the same vigneron (James Wiens) who manages the vineyard providing our Niagara Pinot Noir grapes. This chardonnay was 50% barrel fermented in Burgundian oak barrels and 50% in stainless steel tanks. The oak used was fine grained, limiting the release of oak components into the wine and resulting in a wine with only subtle oak flavours. The wine has good acidity and minerality with beautiful fruit and is reminiscent of the much loved Stanners Vineyard 2010 Chardonnay VQA Lincoln Lakeshore, which some sommeliers felt was the best Canadian Chardonnay they had ever tasted. With a little time in the bottle this wine could surpass the 2010.

Pinot Gris

   

2014 Pinot Gris cuivré VQA Prince Edward County

   

This wine was made with grapes from our own and one other County vineyard. The wine has a beautiful copper colour which comes from leaving the skins in contact with the juice for 24 hours prior to pressing and starting the fermentation. This technique has resulted in a wine with added complexity and a touch of tannins. It’s a wine style that dates back about a thousand years but is now very uncommon. Nevertheless, it is our favourite way of making Pinot Gris!  In this case, the resultant wine is dry with balanced acidity and enticing flavours of pink grapefruit and orange. There is an intriguing counterbalance between the perceived sweetness of the fruit flavours at the beginning and the pleasant acidity of the finish.

Riesling

   

2012 Riesling VQA Lincoln Lakeshore

   

This wine was made using Riesling grapes from a single vineyard in the Lincoln Lakeshore sub-appellation of Niagara. 2012 enjoyed a warm dry summer and fall, giving wines with more complexity and body than usual and this Riesling is no exception. It is dry with pleasing apple and peach flavours and finely balanced acidity leading to a significant finish. These attributes have made a delicious wine that enhances many different types of food.
