Hand harvest, destemmed and fermented with selected yeast in temperature controlled tank.
Aged in a mix of French and American oak for two and a half years.
Aromas of cherry and spice are followed by flavours of red fruits with light notes of spice.
The palate shows a fresh acidity with a delicate tannin structure. The resulting wine is a fine example of what Niagara can do with this grape variety. This wine displays a wonderful concentration of dense brambly fruit (raspberry, blackberry and currant) while the palate shows staunch structure within a velvet glove. A wine ready to enjoy now yet can age for 3 – 4 years.
Chicken liver pates, risotto ai funghi, grilled salmon, roasted chicken and brie de meaux.
