The grapes were grown in Owen Sound, Ontario.  After hand harvesting, the whole clusters were placed in stainless steel tanks for cultured fermentation. After 9 days of fermentation, the wine was fortified to 19% alcohol to halt further fermentation and retain the residual sugar.  Ageing took place in 82% Neutral French Oak, Burgundy, Barrel and 18% in Glass container for nineteen months and then both components blended for a further 9 months of ageing in stainless steel before unfined and unfiltered, hand bottling. Total ageing time was 28 months.

Tasting Notes:

The nose shows ripe blackberry, cassis, fig, chocolate, and sweet tobacco.  The palate is rich and sweet with dense black berry notes, toast and spice. The balanced ample fine tannin, cleansing acidity and alcohol provide for a very long, dried fruit finish..
