Norman Hardie Calcaire 2017
Norman Hardie Calcaire is beautifully mineral-driven. Lemon colour. The nose opens with fresh white flowers and passionfruit aromas. Focused minerality on the rich and dry palate with subtle crisp lemon citrus and green apple flavours. The wine pays homage to the calcareous limestone soils that provide its stony minerality.
Fun Fact: "Calcaire" means "limestone" in French.
Varietals of Norman Hardie's finest Ontario whites: Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewurztraminer. The fruit grows in calcareous limestone rich soils in Ontario
Hand picking and sorting of every cluster to ensure only perfect fruit makes it into the fermentations. Full lees fermentation and ageing in stainless steel. The co-fermentation of the lees allows them to produce a remarkably well integrated blend in comparison to the blending of already finished wines.
