3x 2019 Ressac

The 2019 Ressac is the first Cabernet Franc to spring out of our Redfoot vineyard - and completely unlike in character from any of our previous Cabernet Francs. It's a romantic and alluring wine that soars out of the glass in waves of silken red fruits and sweet spice. Its palate is a velvet caress of middle-eastern flavours that wraps around you with inevitability and the enigmatic mystique of a siren song.

2019 Ressac is made with 100% Cabernet Franc from our Redfoot Vineyard in Lincoln Lakeshore appellation. Fermentation by indigenous yeast proceeded steadily and comple ted by mid December. The wine was aged in one old oak demi muids without any racking for a total of 17 months.

bottles x 2019 Va-et-Vient
A blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this is our first Meritage blend. It is an aromatic wine combining the Cabernets' spice with round aromas of dark fruit. The palate is meaty, but firm; it’s full of energy, yet it brims with dark red fruit you can bite in and remains positively vibrant. The density of flavours permeating the mouth is unmistakable and the finish is spicy, bright and invigorating.

2019 Va et Vient is a blend of 48% Cabernet Franc (Home Farm Vineyard), 39% Cabernet Sauvignon (Redfoot Vineyard) and 13% Merlot (Redfoot Vineyard).

All three grapes were processed as 100% destemmed fruit and fermented in a combination of large concrete tanks and oak vats. Fermentations by indigenous yeast proceeded steadily and completed by mid December 2019. The wines aged separately in their fermentation vessels on lees and without racking until March 2020 when they were blended and left to age for an additional two months. 2019 Va et Vient was bottled unfiltered and un fined on May 19 th 2020.

Alcohol: 11.5% /vol

3 bottles x 2019 Oxyde
A sunbeam of a wine - invigorating, yet fluid and sensual. It's zesty and focused. Translucent fruit and salinity interweave throughout the body of this (completely dry) Riesling asking further questions about the true nature of this grape in Niagara. A diaphanous creature that glimmers with gentleness and carefree attitude, while nonetheless surprising you with its staying power and the length of pure fruit on the finish.

2019 Oxyde is 100% Riesling from Redfoot Vineyard in Lincoln Lakeshore. It was harvested on October 15 th 2019 and entered the press as 100% whole bunches. Fermentation by indigenous yeast proceeded slowly and steadily in a combination old foudres ( and concrete ( without any temperature control or sulphur additions.

The 2019 Flammerole is 100% Chardonnay from our Redfoot vineyard, fermented and aged in neutral oak barrels and demi-muids for 18 months. It's beautifully-perfumed and open with aromatics of both zesty fruit and fresh florality. The palate is smooth and rich, but quite bright and vibrant at the same time.

The Producer

Pearl Morissette

High demand and short supply has become the norm for Pearl Morissette, whose skyrocketing fame knows no bounds. Burgundy trained François Morissette is on our list of top-shelf Canadian producers who consistently deliver some of the most gorgeous wines imaginable. They are uncompromising wines of terroir that easily transcend the boundaries of the Niagara Peninsula.

François’ career in wine began in his early 20s when he spent a year working for Domaine Alain Gras in Saint-Romain, learning about the traditional winemaking methods of the region. Once he moved back to Quebec, he worked towards becoming a sommelier and spent the rest of the 1990s building some of the most ambitious wine lists in both Quebec and Ontario.

In 2000, the call of the vines was to loud to ignore and he moved back to France to pursue winemaking full-time, working for some of the most famous producers in the Côte d’Or including Frédéric Mugnier in Chambolle-Musigny, Christian Gouges of Domaine Henri Gouges in Nuits-Saint-Georges and Domaine Roulot in Meursault.  After 7 years in Burgundy, he returned to Canada with an eye to make his own wine using the knowledge he gained abroad, and it wasn’t long before he found a partner (Mel Pearl, a developer in Toronto) with whom to make it all happen.

The estate now owns two vineyards: the 19th Street Vineyard in the Twenty Mile Beach VQA and the home vineyard which is next to the winery, that is part of the Creek Shore VQA.
