An invigorating fruit-filled wine with layered aromas of fresh-picked gooseberry, guava and anjou pear are integrated with ripe kiwi, honeydew and grapefruit flavours. Seasoned by the racy citrus-driven acidity that makes the ripe fruit profile sparkle, while a hint of freshly squeezed lime juice leaves a satisfying and long-lasting finish.

Growing Conditions

2020 was a remarkable year for weather and wine in Ontario. Warmer than average winter months led to a cool dry April and May. The approach of summer brought a return of the hot weather with low precipitation and humidity. Similar conditions continued through August with only short, isolated, but intense thunderstorms. While temperatures began to naturally cool, sunshine remained throughout the autumn. The dry, sunny conditions were ideal for the full and complete maturation of grapes and contributed to a smooth harvest.
