The grapes for this wine were sourced from the Niagara Peninsula.  Upon harvest, the grapes were destemmed and crushed to stainless steel fermentation tanks for fermentation with cultured yeast.  Cap management utilized twice daily manual pissage and after a total maceration time of 20 days, the ferments were pressed and, the wine settled, before gentle racking to tanks for malolactic conversion and oak aging over nine months.  The wine was then filtered and bottled.

Tasting Notes:

The wine is pale garnet in colour.  The nose presents suggestions of red raspberry and strawberry, nuanced spice and earthiness.  The palate is light weight, elegantly fruity, with fresh acidity and subtle tannin structure.  The finish is medium long with persistent fruit and acidity.
