This is the best example of Bordeaux that we have experienced in the last 10 years. Aged 18 months in French oak, this wine shows tart dark fruit, cigar box and herbal aromas. The palate is full with bold tannins, dark chocolate and hints of coffee. Definitely a wine for aging, we are curious to see how it
changes over the next 9 or 10 years.

Description

Details

"There were only 1000 bottles of this premium Bordeaux blend produced from top-quality, hand-picked fruit—50% cabernet sauvignon / 27% cabernet franc / 23% merlot. Ripe black fruit, dark chocolate-covered black cherry, tobacco leaf, pencil shaving and sweet smoke aromas are intense on the nose. Cassis, blackberry, and ripe cherry flavours mingle with green bell pepper, dry oregano and freshly cracked black peppercorn offering a robust feast for the palate with its firm yet fine-grained tannin, splendid acidity and long finish. This medium-full bodied gem will further evolve over the next ten years. If drinking now, aerate/decant three hours and enjoy with rare-grilled flank steak or stuffed Portobello mushrooms."

About 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.
