A three-barrel blend from an outstanding vintage that melds generous aromas of wood, vanilla and butterscotch with a rich creamy palate.
Brix at Harvest
A bouquet of aromas and flavours - orange blossom, green apple, pear, papaya, coconut, vanilla, spice, butter, caramel and toasty oak - come together on the palate. A lovely finish with crisp acidity, creaminess and smooth tannins perfectly balanced. Best serving temperature 10 to 13 C
The stellar vintage of 2014 yielded outstanding ripeness in the premium vineyards located in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Barriques, showing distinct yet subtle American oak nuances while respecting the exceptional fruit qualities of the harvested grapes, were selected for individual barrel fermentation. During a 10 month period, the wine remained on lees with battonage every few months, which lent a desirable complex richness to the palate. A three barrel blend was assembled followed by stabilization and filtration to bottling. The wine was permitted 11 months in bottle prior to release.
