VQA Niagara Peninsula

Tasting Notes: Plum, raspberry, mint and vanilla aromas and flavours. Medium-full bodied with approachable tannins and balanced acidity. A great food wine with plenty of complexity for contemplation.

Food Pairing: Beef stew, braised lamb, and lasagna.

Winemaker’s Notes: The grapes for this wine were harvested at optimal ripeness at the end of a warm ripening period. Warm fermentations using selected yeast strains, with 14 days of maceration yield a balanced wine exhibiting fruitiness and firm tannins with good length. Blending prior to ageing yields a harmonious wine, ready for consumption but with the strength to age.

Residual Sugar: 2.8 g/L
