Acacia, citrus, lemon zest with light waxy yellow apple and honeysuckle is served up as an aromatic profile that gives way to a palate with great texture and richness.

Growing Conditions

A moderate winter and temperate spring allowed budbreak and flowering to set in five days earlier than average; though the bud count was reduced as a result of sudden frosts in late autumn, 2017. Summer was hot and dry creating even clusters, great concentration, healthy fruit and ease in the vineyard. The head start and persistent heat matured grapes earlier than average Niagara harvests with many of the whites being picked in the forepart of September. Autumn warmth continued but significant precipitation and resulting humidity ensued, creating some pressure to resist disease. Careful tending of the vineyard and flexibility became key to bringing in healthy, ripe fruit. The red harvest began with Gamay in early October and all varieties were harvested by mid November.
