2021 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 11.5% ALC/VOL
Pinot Gris

Our 2021 Pinot Gris is fresh and fruity with aromas of honeydew melon, green pear and light spice with a touch of stony minerality. On the palate it is lively with refreshing, firm acidity and flavours of lime zest, fresh lemon, white pear, fresh green herbs and wet stone, with a long refreshing finish.

Enjoy over the next 3 years with raw shell fish, deep fried calamari, simple chicken dishes or pork schnitzel.

This Pinot Gris was sourced exclusively from our Market Vineyard located at the corner of Fourth Avenue and Seventh Street in the Creek Shores sub-appellation. Harvest was in mid-September. After harvest, the grapes were crushed and destemmed before gentle pressing. The grapes were then fermented and aged in stainless steel with fine lees to provide added richness and creamy mouthfeel. After light fining and filtration, the wine was bottled in April 2022.

Late winter and early spring had higher than average temperatures leading to an early bud break on May 10th (one week earlier than last year). The high temperatures continued through spring leading to rapid canopy development, flowering and fruit set. The heat continued through the summer with just enough rain to refresh the vines. Harvest began in late August with Chardonnay for sparkling. After a two week break due to excessive rain, harvest continued throughout late September and early October with aromatic whites and lighter reds. Harvest continued throughout October and November with later ripening reds, ending with Cabernet Sauvignon in late November. Overall, yields were moderate due to thorough sorting and preventative management. Wines should be drunk on release or cellared for the medium-term.
