Tasting Notes

The 10th vintage from the Quarry Road Vineyard, this Pinot Noir spent 16 months in French oak barrels, 25% of which were new. An aromatic wine with notes ofred currant, cherry cola, black licorice, and graphite.  The palate is pronounced with smooth tannins, with a dose of currant and cherry cola. There is a minerality that concludes the long finish, which is a true reflection of the terroir of the Quarry Vineyard. This is certainly a wine that will benefit with decanting in its youth but will be a great addition to anyone’s cellar to enjoy once matured.
This pinot noir with its structured tannins will pair beautifully with roasted mushrooms with herbs, cedarplank salmon or grilled pork tenderloin with cherry compote.

The Producer

Tawse Winery

Situated on the lower slopes of the Niagara Escarpment, Tawse is a family-owned organic winery. A life-long lover of wine, Burgundy in particular, founder Moray Tawse purchased the Cherry Avenue property in 2001 after realizing the great potential of the Niagara Escarpment as a word-class cool-climate wine region. In 2005, he opened his state-of-the-art winery in Vineland, complete with a six-level, gravity-flow design, geo-thermal system and a wetland bio-filter.

The inspiration for Moray’s eponymous Niagara property came from his love of Burgundian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Uniting traditional winemaking techniques with state-of-the-art technology, Tawse and the award-winning winemaking team of Paul Pender and Rene Van Ede, is dedicated to producing terroir-driven wines of exceptional elegance, depth and character.

At Tawse, winemaking begins in the vineyards. We proudly apply rigorous organic methods to every aspect of our production from grape-growing to winemaking and Ecocert seals appear on all wines made from our estate fruit.

Today, having acquired over 200 acres (5 vineyards) and being named Canadian Winery of the year in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2016, Tawse Winery now produces 30,000 cases of wine and has one of the largest portfolios of organic wines in the Niagara region.
