A blend of five varietals that grow remarkably well in Ontario, the aromatics showcase notes of black cherry and currant, with subtleties of sweet tobacco, candied plum, mint and black pepper. The palate mirrors the nose, but with a distinct shift towards ripened cherry, candied liquorice and cooked blackberries. Cabernet Franc (34%), Baco Noir (28%), Merlot (15%), Pinot Noir (12%), and Cabernet Sauvignon (11%). 12.5% alc./vol. 11g/L of sugar.
Vintage and Terroir
The 2017 vintage showcased a summer that had both highs and lows – a healthy mix of rain and sun lead to an unpredictable start of the season, and as the summer turned to fall, an extended heat wave came at the perfect time to fully ripen all aromatic varietals. Harvest dates followed a predictable timeline and the cooler nights of the summer helped enhance the aromatic quality of the grapes.
