Growing Conditions

Viticultural practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand-leaf removal and hand-harvest. The Growers Blend series, first introduced in 2008, was conceived to showcase the Niagara Peninsula sites where Pinot expresses its full potential and to capture how it performs in a given vintage.

Winemaking

The warm summer of 2012 gave us a Pinot that displays notes of dry cherry followed by nutmeg on the nose. Silky tannins are felt on the palate along with shy oak notes and hints of red currant.

Food Pairing

Pinot is renowned for being an extremely food-friendly wine and the 2012 Growers Blend lives up to that reputation. Approachable and fruit-forward, it would be a great companion for BBQ burgers, roasted pork tenderloin, cedar plank salmon or charcuterie. A perfect weekday go to wine!
