• The Vintage: The 2011 vintage started off about 2 weeks behind schedule with heavy rain and limited sunshine for the months of April and May. June and July saw much warmer temperatures and fairly dry conditions, giving the vines a chance to catch up on the ripening process. With the warm summer, most of the earlier ripening varieties were brought in early and in good condition. Wineries were very busy in late September and early October managing the challenges of a rainy harvest season and precision in picking decisions was important this year. Tasting Notes: A full-bodied, succulent icewine with a rich nose of honey, marmalade, ripe apricot, brown sugar and allspice. The palate is sweet, with ripe apple, honey, pineapple and peach flavours. The creamy-sweet and buttery palate is balanced by a delicate acidity. Technical Notes: Grapes were hand harvested January 9th 2012 from vineyards in the Four Mile Creek sub-appellation. The grapes were slow pressed while frozen over 3 days. The juice was settled and racked into French oak barrels for fermentation which took 5 weeks to complete. The Icewine was then aged for 2.5 years in 2 new 500L French oak barrels. Blended and bottled July 2015. 100 cases produced.
  • Wine Profile Tasting profile: Creamy vanilla and marshmallow notes, combined with orange blossom, citrus and spicy flavours. A beautiful partner for delicate fish and poultry.
  • 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: An fruity, slightly floral and spicy nose accented with fresh red berry fruit such as cherry and cranberry. The palate is medium bodied with an elegant structure created by delicate acidity and firm tannin. Ripe flavours of beetroot, cedar spice and wild strawberry. Drinking beautifully now, this wine should continue to develop in bottle into 2020 for added complexity and silky texture.
  • The Vintage: 2016 provided close to perfect conditions for wine grapes with a warm, arid growing season and temperate fall harvest. Virtually all grape varieties performed well in this growing season and the dry and pleasant harvest season meant most grapes were picked in pristine condition. This quality should be evident in both red and white varieties grown in the Niagara region. Tasting Notes: Ripe nose of peach, Granny Smith apple, honeysuckle, and lemon zest. The palate is medium bodied with an oil texture, subtle sweetness and balancing citrus acidity. Flavours include orange blossom, honeydew melon, apple, pear, and mineral notes. Technical Notes: Grapes were harvested in late September from select vineyards in the Niagara Peninsula at an average of 20° brix. The grapes were crushed, pressed and the juice was fermented in stainless steel tank. The wine was allowed to settle in tank and bottled February 27, 2017.

  • The Vintage: The 2017 vintage started off with heavy periodic rainfalls in spring and throughout most of the summer months. Luckily, the rainy weather was punctuated by sunny days that allowed the grapes to keep maturing and kept disease pressure under control. Finally, September arrived, and Ontario welcomed steady warm, dry weather. Unseasonably warm, dry conditions continued through October and November, allowing the grapes a welcome break from precipitation and affording time to reach ideal ripeness levels. Tasting Notes: Rich and complex nose of lychee, rosewater, and ripe apple. The palate continues to impress with redolent poached pear, pineapple, mandarin oranges and starfruit all packed into a full bodied, creamy textured wine with lingering spice on the finish. Exotic, complex, and well balanced! Technical Notes: Grapes were harvested in late September from a single vineyard in the Lincoln Lakeshore sub appellation in the Niagara Peninsula. Grapes were hand picked and left to cold soak on the skins overnight (approximately 18 hours total) 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 2018.
