Tasting Notes

Proprietor and Burg-hound, Moray Tawse, has his eyes set on this site. Tintern Vineyard is planted toward the top of the benchland behind Tawse Winery, and is an exceptional site for Pinot Noir that Moray believes is well on its way to being the "crown jewel" of Tawse. It was planted in 2010 and has been farmed Certified Organically since the beginning.

This is only the 3rd vintage from the Tintern Vineyard. Aged 16 months in French oak barrels; 30% of which were new. An aromatic wine with notes of field berries and cassia, layered with cigar box. The palate is pronounced with bold, yet wellintegrated tannins with minerality, red fruits and toast. 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.

“A more classic Burgundian expression, tense, nervy, compelling and somewhat restrained at present. Finely tuned wood treatment adds only delicate spice to the palate, enhancing the fruit character. Fine, elegant tannins provide light structure to the palate. Terrific length.”

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.
