Harvested on October 19th, 2017 from the Hughes Vineyard in Niagara. Fermented naturally on skins for 13 days prior to pressing. As the wine fermented the skins were punched down daily for gentle extraction. Aged in a combination of stainless steel and neutral oak for four months before blending.
Expressing the vibrancy of fruit from the Hughes Vineyard, this wine was fermented on the skins for 13 days before pressing. Austere and mineral-driven with notes of citrus, white pepper and honey.
