Pinot Noir

   
     

2012 Pinot Noir VQA Prince Edward County          NEW RELEASE

This wine was made with grapes from our estate vineyard using our methods of minimal disturbance and gentle handling to preserve the original County flavours and bouquet. The wine was unfiltered and aged in Burgundian oak barrels. The result is a floral wine with sensual cherry and strawberry tones beautifully balanced with acidity and a light but complex tannic finish. A light bodied wine with excellent intensity and a most enjoyable complement with a wide range of foods from smoked salmon to duck and lamb.

2011 Pinot Noir VQA Prince Edward County

Our traditional approach with minimal handling in the winery and no filtration has resulted in a wine that reflects the County terroir - floral with bright strawberry flavours, good minerality and finely balanced acidity. An exceptional example of the pure elegance that Pinot Noir can reach. A light bodied wine with excellent intensity!

2011 Pinot Noir VQA Four Mile Creek 

A lovely Pinot made from grapes from a single vineyard in the Four Mile Creek sub-appellation of the Niagara Peninsula. This vineyard has heavy clay soil and enjoys warm daytime temperatures and cool nights, ideal for developing ripe flavours while maintaining the acidity typical of fine Burgundian-style Pinots. The fruit is focused toward cherry and vanilla flavours and is followed by a long finish of fine grained tannins. The balance is excellent, making for an easy drinking, highly enjoyable wine.

Cabernet Franc

   
     

2012 Cabernet Franc VQA Vinemount Ridge  

   

The grapes used for this wine were from a single vineyard in the Vinemount Ridge sub appellation of the Niagara Peninsula, the same vineyard that we used in our very successful 2009 Cab Franc. The vineyard is at a higher elevation with cool night-time temperatures, which helps produce grapes with vibrant fruit flavours and good acidity. In addition, the growing season in 2012 was hot and dry, excellent conditions for the full ripening of Cabernet Franc. The resultant wine has strong raspberry and blackberry fruit flavours nicely balanced with smooth tannins, giving an outstanding long, warm and complex finish. A superb wine with real appeal!

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.

Chardonnay

   

2013 Chardonnay VQA Prince Edward County          NEW RELEASE

   

This Chablis-like chardonnay was made with our own estate grapes, the survivors of a late spring frost and therefore of exceptionally high quality. It was partially barrel fermented and aged for 12 months in a barrel made from local Canadian oak. The resulting wine has pleasing acidity and minerality underlying bright apple, citrus and coconut flavours leading to a beautifully balanced finish. The richness of the fruit combined with the acidity and minerality gives the wine both sensuality and edge. The overall quality of this wine along with the very limited size of the release (45 cases) presages a quick sell-out i.e., don’t hesitate ordering it or it will be gone!

Pinot Gris

   

2013 Pinot Gris cuivré          NEW RELEASE

   

This wine was made with grapes from our estate 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 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 orange and pink grapefruit. There is an intriguing counterbalance between the perceived sweetness of the fruit flavours at the beginning and the pleasant acidity of the finish.
