White wine - VQA Niagara Peninsula
Aromas of ripe raspberries, red cherries and strawberries. The palate is complex with sweet cherry flavours followed by jammy characters leading to a finish full of raspberry and strawberry. Well-balanced with a lively acidity.
Serve at 12°C. Pair with rich foods such as foie gras and soft creamy cheeses, including Blue or Stilton, as well as sweet berry desserts and dark chocolate.
Growing Season and Harvest:
The frozen Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were harvested in early December when temperatures fell between -10 and -13. After settling the juice in stainless steel tanks, cool fermentation was completed in late-February when the wine was placed outdoors to stop fermentation and complete a natural cold stabilization.
