? Harvested from selected vineyard sites within the Niagara Peninsula.
? Fermented on skins for 14 days to develop colour, flavour and structure (tannin).
? Aged for 12 months using 100% American oak barrels with full malolactic fermentation.

? Garnet colour with an intriguing bouquet of sweet oak and cedar, plum, black pepper, cherry, cocoa and humidor.
? A medium-bodied wine that has drying tannins and good structure.
? Rich flavours of black plums, black cherry and smoke fill the mouth.
? Juicy black fruits, spice and cedar linger on the finish.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
