  • Winemaking Notes

    The 2016 vintage was hot and sunny, the vines produced fruit with very ripe flavour's and lower acidity – a great Niagara vintage! A portion of the harvest was set aside to dry for 90 days before being pressed.This wine then spent 18 months maturing in French oak barrels. Drinking beautifully now, the '16 Apologetic Red will continue to cellar through to the year 2026.

  • Food Paring

    This wine pairs perfectly with osso bucco, rack of lamb, chateaubriand, hearty stews, wild mushroom risotto with truffle, charcuterie and cheese boards, with a fine cigar or by itself with good friends!
