Winemaking Notes

Our 2020 Sauvignon Blanc was machine harvested on September 17, 2020, and gently pressed into a stainless-steel tank; where it settled for two days before being racked off its gross lees. We choice to inoculate with a selected yeast and fermented at a very cool temperature to preserve its freshness and beautiful aromatic. After fermentation, we tasted the wine and really enjoyed the nature weight this wine had developed during fermentation and decided to age on lees for 6 months. We bottled this wine on a beautiful sunny day on April 7, 2021.

Tasting Notes

Our goal for this Sauvignon Blanc is to reflect our unique Niagara terroir and this wine shows it in spades. 2020 was a year for the history books and this vintage seemed like the only saving grace, A warm vintage with great shoulder seasons along with cool evenings and warm days allowed for us to fully ripen the fruit while maintaining stunning natural acidity. The result is very intense tropical aromas of passionfruit, guava and key lime The palate has bright acidity, with more kiwi, key lime and passionfruit, but also lovely elderflower, lemongrass and a hint of wet stone and mineral notes. Given the warm vintage the weight and lees aging build an intense and long finish with a pleasant mineral note. Drink now or over the next 3 years. Enjoy with pan-fried halibut, fresh pesto & anchovy-paste pasta, or lemon & herb roasted chicken.
