The 2016 vintage was hot and sunny, the vines produced fruit with very ripe flavours and lower acidity – a great Niagara vintage! The grapes were harvested in late September with a portion set aside to dry for 30 days. Fresh and appassimento portions were individually fermented over 4 weeks, before final blending and aging in stainless steel tanks.
Serve this wine thoroughly chilled with fresh oysters, shrimp dishes, trout and salmon dishes, roasted chicken, peach flatbread with goat cheese, Moroccan style couscous dishes, and summer picnics.
