About This Wine:
This wine originates from our Cave Spring Vineyard, located on a hillside of the Niagara Escarpment overlooking Lake Ontario known as the Beamsville Bench. Here, moderating on-shore breezes allow for the full ripening of this aromatic grape, resulting in a richly textured wine with classic varietal traits of spice and exotic fruit.

An intensely aromatic nose with scents of ginger, lychee, rosewater, orange blossom and a hint of comb honey; the front-palate is luscious, and just off dry, rolling in the middle into rich, expansive spice and marmalade flavours that carry into a lingering, cleanly balanced finish of orange peel, clove and ginger.
