The 2017 vintage started off heavy periodic rainfalls in spring 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 very good ripeness levels.
The grapes were soaked for 15 or so hours before pressing to bins and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. 2017 was an excellent vintage for the whites with that warm and dry September really getting the skins ripe while keeping nice acidity in the wine.
These grapes were machine harvested from a single vineyard on the Beamsville Bench on October 2nd.
