Bright, white and out of sight; the triumvirate of Riesling, Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer. Long names and hard to pronounce, so we call this wine 'White'. Not just another single varietal wine -- why choose one grape when you can have three? Think lime citrus and apple freshness with a dash of lychee fruit, in that order. As someone said at a recent event, tastes like a sun-vacation. > Learn More
The long cool extended harvest allowed the brilliant tropical characters to develop while still preserving the signature acidity. This wine is fresh, lively and enticing. Bright notes of guava and pineapple spiral around essences of crisp apple and pear. All that we love about summer is captured in this wine. > Learn More
The wine was fermented completely in stainless steel with aging sur lie (on the yeast lees sediment) to bring complexity and depth of flavour. Bright and aromatic with flavours ranging from vibrant apple to citrusy grapefruit. True cool climate chardonnay character! > Learn More
Buttered toast, ginger and cinnamon, pear and pineapple aromas mingle on the nose. Dry, medium-full bodied, there’s a well-defined yet restrained backbone of acidity that showcases the creamy, round texture and ripe, lush fruit. Attractive notes of spice, toast and a touch of white pepper add warmth to the flavourful, satiny finish.

Polloni Spumante distinguishes itself with a beautiful creamy mousse and a lovely nose with hints of citrus, peach, apple and notes of white flowers. Soft and creamy on the palate with great freshness and balance. While this would make a lovely aperitif, it has more than enough character to accompany grilled fish and fruit desserts. > Learn More

The nose is replete with aromas of ripe red apple, musk melon and clementine, tinged with spice and butter. The palate shows rich, exotic citrus fruit up front and in the middle, underpinned by the wine's hefty body. The finish is clean and crisp with blood orange flavours and overtones of citrus rind. This Chardonnay stands out for its balance power and ripe with vivacious fruit and acidity.
"Twisted is the flagship white of a laudible, high-end Niagara winery, unlike many of its peers in this country and beyond, has kept a sane lid on prices. The wine is a blend of Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Chardonnay, and this is the first vintage under the eye of winemaker Dave Sheppard. Perfectly off-dry, intriguingly oily and for the sake of a foreign frame of reference - voluptuously Alsatian. Plump and musky, it offers up flavours of apricot, peach and baked apple, like a mixed-fruit country pie. A well-crafted blend that combines Riesling’s zip with Gewurztraminer’s aromatics and Chardonnay’s flesh."
Originally cultivated in what is today the Burgundy region of France, the Chardonnay is a pale green grape used in the creation of white wines. While much of the grape production remains focused on France, this grape thrives in many places around the world. In fact, it would be difficult to find an area of the planet where wine is produced without the presence of this grape. The popularity of this grape exceeds that of many other varieties. Much of this is due to the qualities that it brings to the making of wine. Under optimum conditions, the result is a wine with a relatively high alcohol content, a nice mix of sweetness with tartness, and a clear color that pleases the eye. The fact that the wine also has a bouquet many people find pleasant also ensures it’s a favorite. The wine made with Chardonnay is ideal for use at the table, in cooking, and as something pleasant to offer company. With the increase in popularity of this grape, it’s safe to say it will be remain a favorite for generations to come.
