Tasting Notes

2007 was a Canadian vintner’s delight. A mild winter and ensured that the vines were healthy and productive during the 2007 growing season. The summer was fairly dry and warm with some drought conditions and cases of heat stress were observed in some vineyards. The fall was generally a dry one with warm sunny days and cool nights on average. Periodic rainfall plumped the grapes up nicely creating excellent tonnage. Just about every grape variety performed well in 2007 both red and white varieties showed good sugar levels, flavour concentration and acidity

Technical Notes

100% Vidal Icewine grapes harvested from 4 Vineyards in Niagara late January/early February 2008 at an average of 38.5° Brix. The grapes were gently pressed and fermented and aged in older, neutral French oak barrels. Though the old wood doesn’t impart oak flavour, it does add to the complexity and mouth feel of the wine. Bottled Nov. 28th, 2008.
