Winemaking notes

This wine originates from our Cave Spring Vineyard, located on a hillside of the Niagara Escarpment overlooking Lake Ontario known as the Beamsville Bench. Cool temperature, indigenous yeast fermentation in stainless steel over a 4 week period; 7 months on the fine lees prior to bottling

Tasting notes

The nose is subtle yet complex, with scents of white pepper, yellow grapefruit and white flowers rising over top hints of licorie and chalk. The palate is dry and medium bodied, with bright yellow plum fruit and crisp acidity up front, a rich yet stony middle and a long, intense finish of grapefruit essence and spice. Tightly strucured throughout, the wine shows tremendous tension and vibrancy. Serving Suggestions: Lobster bisque, sashimi, sautéed trout, lemon-chicken, sweet potato curry, choucroute, roasted pork loin, medium cow’s milk cheese
