  • The Vintage: The 2015 growing season started out as a challenging one with record breaking cold temperatures in February and January. The growing season started out with a very wet June but the remainder of the summer months were dry with below average rainfall. Harvest conditions were excellent and good weather prevailed for much of the harvest period. Despite a rocky start, the 2015 vintage came together nicely with good harvest weather. While crops were slightly reduced by winter damage, the vintage yielded grapes with good to excellent flavour concentration and complexity. Tasting Notes: Crafted in a style similar to that of Alsatian Gewurztraminer, this wine is fairly dry with pronounced aromatics and a delicate spice on the finish. The nose is intense, with aromas of rosewater, apple blossom, tangerine and lychee nut. The palate is medium bodied with a rich centre and spice and acidity on the finish. Technical Notes: Grapes were harvested in mid-September from a single vineyard in the St. David’s Bench sub appellation in the Niagara Peninsula. Grapes were hand picked and left to cold soak on the skins overnight prior to pressing for added spice and complexity. The wine was pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures. The wine was filtered and bottled May 2016.
