This light, easy drinking Pinot possesses aromatic notes of malted chocolate, cherry and licorice. The palate is sprinkled with lively acidity and soft, welcoming tannins. Black cherry and a subtle pepper bring this wine to a pleasant conclusion.

2019 Pinot Noir Rose Green apple and citrus are apparent on the nose with a touch of floral aromas. Intense citrus flavours are complemented by strawberry and raspberry notes on the palate. Subtle tannins are present along with a refreshing acidity to balance the finish of the wine.
Sparkling Riesling Fruit-forward aromas and flavours of crisp green apple, ripe peaches and lemon zest. Clean and refreshing with big lively bubbles!
A more deeply coloured rosé, just off-dry with flavours of plum skin and red raspberry. A touch of bitterness, cherry pit and ripe strawberry along with a balanced degree of freshness. There is some satisfying weight to this blend but the alcohol is well in check. Cheerful and offering good complexity for the price.
90 points - Winealign.com, June 2017 (vintage 2016)
"This delicate, dry rosé with pretty packaging is uber-pale, threaded with fine bubbles, and is bottled under a handy screwcap. The nose is coy and restrained with barely there suggestions of red berries. Then, the attack is brisk but balanced, rather sophisticated tasting actually. Each elegant sip suggests fresh bread, strawberry, lemon curd and a touch of cool minerality. Total steal for less than $20. And delicious with smoked salmon and cream cheese on toast points, sushi, or Niçoise salad."
94 Points - Carolyn Evans Hammond, The Toronto Star, April 2020
Raspberry pink, fine and homogeneous bubbles. The nose is very clean, with hints of red fruits and bakery aromas. In the mouth, the bubble is very well integrated, tingly. With a very nice impression red fruit it is extremely fresh and leaves a light and very pleasant aftertaste.

This wine is burgundy in colour with garnet hues to the edge. On the nose, spicy notes of cloves and cinnamon along with penetrating red berry fruit are at the forefront, with earthy undertones in behind. The palate combines bright raspberry and Bing cherry fruit, crisp but well-integrated acidity and great intensity and persistence of flavour throughout. There is a definite gaminess and a hint of white pepper that lingers very long on the finish. All in all, this cooler vintage has delivered a classically-structured Pinot of considerable complexity.
The 2019 Grower’s Blend Rosé is a Pinot Noir based blend with Cabernet Franc, Gamay Noir and Merlot. To impart structure and colour, it was made using a process called “saignée” though which we combine the free-run juice of select single-vineyard red grapes before they are pressed. The result is a beautiful coral coloured and aromatic Rose that is bursting with aromas of ripe strawberries, raspberries and blood orange. The palate is off-dry with flavours of honeydew melon, rhubarb and red cherries. This well-structured wine has crisp acidity and a satisfying finish

Pale and vibrant salmon pink colour with nuances of purple. Complex nose with an aromatic bouquet of fresh red fruit, citrus flavours, lemon lime and floral notes. On the palate, a fresh attack of ripe red fruits, lime and citrus. Broad and refreshing midpalate well balanced between fruit weight, acid and a smooth texture. Vibrant final of red fruit and citrus with a touch of creaminess.
Not all varieties of grapes are cultivated specifically for wine, but Pinot Noir is an exception. Considered one of the oldest types of grapes in the world, there is evidence that it was in use during the days of the Roman Empire. While the production remains highest in France and parts of the United States, Germany is also home to a number of vineyards with Pinot Noir present. Those three nations account for the majority of the wine made with this grape each year. The name of the grape itself is of interest. Derived from the French words for pine and black respectively, the name describes some of the qualities that make it an ideal choice for wine production. The pine aspect refers to the way the grapes cluster as they grow. The black is a reference to the deep color and the high concentration of tannins found in the mature fruit. Several varieties of wine are produced from the grape, including some white wines. A good year will provide a pleasant bouquet, a desirable texture and taste, and serve as the ideal wine for special occasions.
