3x 2019 Va-et-Vient Meritage Ontario VQA

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 fermentati on vessels on lees and without racking until March 2020 when they were blended and left to age for an additional two months.

3x 2019 Lilia Cabernet Franc
The second vintage of Lila and our third time working with the Lemberger grape -are we ever in love?! Beguilingly purple colour -deeper and sultrier than the original vintage, yet still shiny and lush. It streams out of the glass with a perfume that is pretty and floral, yet spicy and meaty too. It fills the palate with an unusual, dense and piquant combination of flavours -and still drinks with ease. The quintessential table wine and then some -approachable, but full of mysteries. It'll take you through all the seasons without blinking an eye and it'll be fantastic with a huge variety of foods.

2019 Lila is a blend of 69% Lemberger from Knizat vineyard in NOTL 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 2% Merlot all sourced from Redfoot vineyard in Lincoln Lakeshore. All the grapes were fermented separately as 100 % destemmed fruit and aged in concrete (Lemberger), old oak foudres (Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon) and old oak demi-muid (Merlot). The wines spent 6 months aging on their primary lees, at which point they were blended for an additional 2 months of aging in stainless-steel. Bottled May 5, 2020 - unfined and unfiltered, of course.

3x 2018 Irrévérence Blanc
A blend of Riesling, Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer, that was also graced by 30% noble rot in the Gewurtz portion, this is a completely dry wine that has stolen our hearts and twisted our minds in our exploration of skin-fermentation. A wine with a rich and indulging perfume that shines with golden nuance and honeyed notes. The palate flows in unexpected ways - satiating and unrelenting; rich and smooth, yet lively. Exceptionally dynamic with a wide variety of foods.

2018 Irrévérence is a blend of Riesling from Butler’s Grant vineyard in 20 Mile Bench (35.4%), Chardonnay from Redfoot Vineyard in Lincoln Lakeshore (25.1%) and Gewurztraminer from Knizat vineyard in NOTL (39.5%). The fruit was respectively picked on October 7th, September 27th and October 8 th and 29th (two separate picks for the Gewurtz). The Chardonnay was fermented and aged in foudres, the Riesling in foudre and stainless steel. A portion of the Gewurztraminer was co-fermented with Riesling on skins in qvevri for a total of 6 months, while the rest (carrying 30% noble rot) fermented to complete dryness in a foudre. The wines aged separately in their fermentation vessels on primary lees for 12 months, before being blended for an additional 12 months of aging in a combination of concrete and foudres.

3x 2018 Fougue Chardonnay
The second vintage of our Fougue is here and allowing us to explore a Chardonnay of distinctly different character than the Dix-Neuvième. Supple and lush, yet translucent and pulsing with vibrant energy, weaving through an unmistakable combination of rich fruit and firm salinity that we’ve come to know from our Home Farm vineyard. This is a wine that will readily give ample pleasure now, but has many years ahead in its life.

2018 Fougue is 100% Chardonnay from our high density, Home Farm vineyard in Creek Shore appellation. The fruit was harvested on September 18th, 20th and 21st 2018 and after careful sorting, it entered the press as 100% whole clusters. Fermentation proceeded steadily in a combination of old foudre and concrete, and completed by early 2019. The wine aged in its fermentation vessels on primary lees for a total of 23 months. 2018 Fougue was bottled unfiltered and un-fined on September 9th, 2020.

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.
