Description

 

2016 was an exceptionally dry year in the Niagara Peninsula, resulting in beautifully feminine wine. This wine exudes cherry and a slight earthiness on the nose, with generous red fruit notes and crunchy acidity on the palate. The tannins are expressive giving way to a long, lingering finish.

Harvested from four separate sites in the Niagara Peninsula, each site contributing layers of complexity to the wine. Cold maceration of 7 days, indigenous yeast fermentation with two punch downs daily. The wine was pressed in small batches in a traditional basket press. Aged in 228L French oak barrels for 9 months. Natural malolactic fermentation, bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimum sulphur.
