TASTING NOTES
Grapefruit, passion fruit, freshly cut grass and subtle gooseberry notes. The palate is fresh and crisp with white grapefruit and lime flavours complemented by a zesty citrus finish.

VINTAGE & VITICULTURE
While the season began with a wet cool spring, summer brought typical temperatures across Ontario. July was particularly warm and sunny with intense heat waves and high humidity. Early-ripening grape varieties escaped the wild weather of late fall and the unusual early cold snap in November. Harvest extended into early December, sometimes taking place in the snow.

WINEMAKER’S NOTES
The fruit was a blend from 12 year old and 16 year old vines. Grapes were allowed to soak for 8 hours before pressing. After pressing the juice was clarified with flotation technology and the clean juice was inoculated with a selected yeast strain for Sauvignon Blanc. Fermentation was completed in 10 days and further aging was done in stainless steel.
