A delicious way to enjoy the sweet essence of Ontario Blackcurrants. Drink on its own as an after dinner treat, with sparkling wine in a Kir Royale - even over vanilla ice cream or lemon gelato. Serve slightly chilled.
Cassis is best served chilled. Ideal with fresh fruit dishes, creamy desserts or drizzled over ice cream. Use with sparkling wine for a wonderful aperitif. A summer refresher with lemonade.
In order to preserve the fresh fruit characteristics in the finished wine, the fermentation is stopped with the addition of certified Canadian neutral spirit, leaving some residual sugar. The fruit macerates for three to four weeks in stainless steel tanks, after which it is pressed and sweetened, prior to bottling.

I found a bottle of your 1997 vintage this evening in my cupboard. I purchased it on a visit to Southbrook with my uncle Don Durkin from St Thomas who my husband & I were holidaying from the UK in 1998. The Cassis is delicious - I had 2 glasses just to be sure. Best Wishes- glad o see youve expanded and are doing well Patricia.
