About This Wine
This wine originates from grapes grown along the south shore of Lake Ontario. The clusters are left to raisin on the vine during late autumn, with a further concentration occurring as the berries are partially frozen by the first deep frosts of the season. Harvested and pressed in a semi-frozen state, they deliver a sweet wine with ideal balance of luscious fruit and crisp acidity.
Vintage
2017 was of vintage of average warmth and ample rainfall. A sunny, dry fall allowed for extended ripening, The late harvest wines are succulent and crisply structured, with long-term ageability.
