Winemaker's Notes

The selection of Reserve designated grapes is one based entirely on the overall quality and maturity of the fruit at the time of harvest. For this bottling, the highest quality Pinot Noir was assembled from several different vineyards in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The wine was fermented 14 days on the skins before pressing and aged for 14 months in 225L French oak barrels. "This wine showcases a ruby-garnet hue and is extremely welcoming on the nose. Featuring a floral aroma of violets enhanced with sweet toastiness, spiced bing cherries and a slight earthiness. The mouth feel of upfront ripe tannins is complimented by characteristics of cherries, toast and spice. Well-rounded and smooth. Food Suggestions include wild mushroom dishes, venison, rare red meats, duck, ostrich, veal, lamb, salmon and roasted meats."
