The 2017 vintage began cool and rainy however a warm snap in early Autumn allowed the fruit to fully ripen in time for harvest. A portion of the Chardonnay harvest was set aside to dry in the appassimento method which lends to the wines creamy texture. With fermentation and aging taking place in stainless steel, the Amarosé retains its fresh fruit aromas and flavours.
Delightful on its own on the patio, or as a welcoming beverage for guests. Serve with summer salads, fresh oysters, mussels or salmon. Also robust enough to pair with pork tenderloin and BBQ foods such as chicken and turkey burgers.
GOLD Ontario Wine Awards 2018, 89 Points “It has a creamy feel on the palate and is richer than some rosés we’re seeing in Niagara…it has wonderful red berries and uplifting citrus accents on the finish.” – Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, April 13 2018
