Canadian wine delivered right to your door!
Wine Profile: Bright ruby color. Nose of fresh cherry and raspberry with spicy, earthy notes in the background. Palate is light and fruity; a simple style with freshness and purity. Berry fruit is tied together with baked earth and a savory edge.
Winemaking: Harvested October 10th to 17th at an average of 21° brix. Fermented in stainless steel, 21-day primary fermentation for extended maceration. Aged 30 months in neutral French oak barriques prior to bottling.
Vineyard: A temperate microclimate covers the region of Prince Edward County. It is also geographically distinct; the island lies on a bed of limestone gravel with fractured bedrock that was deposited on the edge of the Canadian Shield. The result is the perfect combination of climate and geography for growing vinifera grapes. Our 600-acre farm (60 acres under vine) is 5 km inland in the Hillier region making us a hotbed in Prince Edward County standards. The block containing our Gamay was planted from 2001 and 2004, with clones 509 and 565. Located on a site with southern exposures, and soils averaging a depth of 15-36”.
