Doug Gilmour Wine – Bin 93 White

$18.93

PRE-ORDER

After 20 seasons of hard-hitting NHL action, I’ve decided to slow down and enjoy some leisurely pursuits. “93” was my jersey number and now represents a selection of fine wines crafted from local grapes right here in Ontario.

Wine has long been a passion of mine, and I hope you enjoy what we have put into bottle for you.

Product Description

Doug Gilmour Wine - Bin 93 WhiteThe 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 conditions in the end. While crops were slightly reduced by winter damage, the vintage yielded grapes with good to excellent flavour concentration and complexity.

Tasting Notes:
An exotic blend of aromatic white grape varieties including Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay and Riesling. This wine has richness in body from partial oak ageing and an expressive nose of peach, honey and delicate citrus on the nose. The palate is rich and medium bodied with balancing acidity and a clean, crisp finish. Enjoy with a range of lighter fare including roast chicken, pan seared whitefish or soft cheeses.

Technical Notes:
Grapes were harvested mid September from select vineyards in the Niagara Peninsula at an average of 20° Brix. The fruit was crushed and immediately pressed upon arrival at the winery. The juice was fermented in 100% stainless steel, temperature controlled tanks to preserve its lively aromatics. The 3 grape varieties were processed and fermented separately in predominantly stainless steel tank, with the Chardonnay component aged in French oak barrels. Blended and bottled October 2017.
