our wine

Our Estate vineyards are all within the small Short Hills Bench Appellation, among the warmest in the region with 90% of Niagara’s south facing slope. Adjacent to the Short Hills Provincial Park, an ancient valley that was the precursor site to present day Niagara Falls, the heavy clay soils with their tossed up limestone make for wines of intensity and character.

Coming from the warmer Short Hills Bench the whites are crisp but round while the sturdy reds emphasize juicy dark berry flavours. Through rigorous declassification these wines are limited in production and made when all of the conditions align perfectly.

From harvest to bottle these wines take 2-3 years and are cropped at levels in the 2-3 bottle per vine range (approximately 3 tonnes per acre).

The allure of this variety is its paradoxical qualities. It is both light and delicate while at the same time rich and complex. Aromas of raspberry and clove spice are followed by flavours of cherry with light notes of tobacco and oak. 91 Points – Natalie MacLean
