Exquisitely fragrant, the 2015 Riesling leaps from the glass with vibrant aromas of lime zest, orange blossom, nutmeg and beeswax. On the palate, a hint of honey, spice and citrus leads to an incredibly full and intense texture balanced by crisp acidity that lingers through to a clean, long finish.

2015 The Fifty Chardonnay $22
The town of Winona, Ontario (where our winery is located) was first named “The Fifty”, short for the “The Fifty Road Settlement”, being 50 miles from Niagara Falls and the American border. As an homage to this area, we created a truly unique wine. This Chardonnay was fermented in oak barrels, before being moved to stainless steel tanks for aging on yeast lees for 9 months. Barrel fermentation adds texture and mouthfeel, while lees aging in stainless steel keeps fresh fruit and mineral at the centre of this wine. We feel this is the best one yet. You will not taste anything quite like it!

Mature vines really display the wonderful minerality of the Twenty Mile Bench in Vineland in what was a warm, but not hot vintage. Fantastic peach, pear and lime aromas intertwine with a slight limestone/reductive note on the nose. On the palate, pineapple, lemon and crème-brule play off a mineral base. A round, mouth-filling texture is balanced by good acidity leading to a long, supple finish.

This wonderfully fresh and fruity yet complex Rose is made from 74% Gamay and 26% Cabernet Sauvignon. A warm but steady growing season created the perfect conditions for making the kind of Rose we love. With gorgeous upfront strawberry and raspberry, and subtle herbs in the background, the balanced acidity refreshes and leaves you wanting more!
This Gamay unfolds on the nose with layers of black cherries, beets and plums. The palate shows wonderful softness and suppleness, with raspberry, spice and earth leading to notes of pepper and pan-drippings. A mouth-filling texture meets a balancing acidity leading to an exceptionally long, round finish.

From the slightly cooler 2013 vintage, this Syrah provides an intense nose of white pepper, lavender, cloves, raspberry, and cassis. The palate is much the same as the nose, with violets, lavender, raspberry, cherry, bacon, and vanilla giving way to a hint of anise. Soft and integrated tannins contrive to encourage a long smooth finish.
