Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
40% crushed & destemmed / 60% whole cluster grapes underwent natural fermentation, then maceration for a total of 21 days. The finished wine then aged in neutral French oak barrels for 7.5 months before blending and bottling.
Vineyard Notes
Third leaf vines produced a tiny crop in the droughty 2016 vintage. Hand-harvested from Heather Laundry’s organic ‘Home’ vineyard in Vinemount Ridge.
Winemaker Notes
This is a high-toned, multi-dimensional , floral expression of Niagara Gamay. Transparent ruby in colour, with aromas of fresh red berry fruit, white flowers and hint of earthy cocoa foundation. Light to medium body, initially with silky texture, replay of tangy red berry fruit and just enough tannin for structure and length. With time in the glass, the mid-palate shows more plump, ripe cherry, pinot-like character.
Food Pairing Notes
This mouth-watering wine will be best enjoyed at 15 to 18 degrees, with appetizers of dried meat, deluxe burgers, pizza/pasta with red sauce, and roasted chicken
