Tasting Notes

Solidly in the dessert wine camp in this vintage, this checks in at 102 g/L residual sugar. Peach, apricot and ripe nectarine fruit flavors abound, with a drip of honey. It's juicy and big, but never cloying, and finishes with a suggestion of dry straw.

The Producer

Cave Spring Vineyard

For Cave Spring Vineyard, the compounding effect of four decades of carefully considered decisions has earned the winery the reputation of a proud pioneer, brave enough to try new things, and patient enough to await the rewards revealed with every passing vintage.Their evolution was guided by the selection of the cool-climate varieties to the rigorous commitment to sustainability, the utilization of exclusively indigenous yeasts and neutral oak in the cellars, and the constant crusade for more demanding industry standards.

Recalling the joy his father and son had found tapping into their rural Italian roots to revive a small vineyard in the 1960s, John Pennachetti Sr knew that the original abandoned orchard set against the Niagara Escarpment’s limestone cliffs had the potential to be something so much more for his family. Today, more than four decades after John and his sons took a chance and planted some of Niagara’s first Riesling and Chardonnay vines on that plot of land, Cave Spring Vineyard serves as a constant reminder of the good things that can happen when the past is honoured in forging a new future.
