OUR PREMIUM WINES
From Niagara's most premium vineyards, including those shovel planted by the Speck Bros. starting in 1984, our red wines are aged in a combination of French and American oak resulting in sturdy, bright wines with juicy red to black berry flavours. The heavy clay soils, with their tossed-up limestone, naturally limit the yields per vine and make for wines of intensity and character.
Our white wines are crisp, round, and aromatic, reflecting the classic Niagara style of wine making with a nod to old world traditions. The contribution from our Estate vineyards in the Short Hills Bench are what make them definitively Henry of Pelham wines.
We have maintained a time honoured tradition by naming our sparkling wines after the widow and matriarch of the family. Named after Catharine Smith, Henry of Pelham's wife, Cuvée Catharine is a hand-picked, bottle fermented sparkling wine that sees lengthy aging.
OUR ICEWINE & LATE HARVEST
Niagara's seasons are very delineated. Summer is warm and autumn is cool followed by a quick shift to winter's cold; these are the perfect conditions for producing Icewine and Late Harvest wines. When winter arrives the berries are typically harvested at night when they are frozen at -8°C (minimum) and when they are at least 36 Brix (% sugar).
OUR SIBLING RIVALRY
What happens when three brothers work together? Sibling Rivalry is three brothers and three blends, with three grapes per blend in our red, white and pink. Sibling Rivalry is about outcomes. The sum of the parts that make up the blends we produce and the sum of the partnership known as The Speck Brothers.
