The grapes were harvested on September 21st of 2020. The fruit was gently pressed into a stainless-steel tank and allowed to settle for 2 days. It was racked off the heavy lees from pressing and started fermenting shortly after. We bottled this wine while fermenting to create the source of carbon dioxide in the bottle.
The intense aromatics of this wine leap from the glass, lifted by beautiful, creamy bubbles. Explosive aromas of fresh mandarin orange, Meyer lemon, fresh ginger, and notions of nutmeg and honeysuckle immediately engage the olfactory senses. The palate echoes the nose, but also brings in mango, lychee and rose-petal with the light citrus and floral components wisping through the background. A rich mouthfeel is brought on with this warmer vintage as well as the lees in bottle. This wine is wonderful right now but can age for 1-3 years.
Please serve well chilled. Pour immediately.
When it comes to shipping, our goal is to find the fastest and most reliable shipping option available to us. During the Covid pandemic, we have made significant changes with our delivery partners to serve you better.
For Toronto deliveries we primarily use Fil Delivery. They have been tremendous and we have had glowing reviews from customers. They update you on the expected delivery time throughout the day to ensure satisfaction. Deliveries leave the winery Mondays and Thursdays for delivery Tuesdays and Fridays.
For deliveries to Hamilton, Burlington and Niagara, winery staff often deliver same day or next. We aim to please as often as possible!
ICS is also used for Major Centers other than Toronto and local. Their delivery times are typically next day from pick up at the winery on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Out of province and small-town Ontario deliveries are packaged appropriately with slow-release heat packs in winter reduce breakage and freezing through CanPar. We review shipping daily to identify issues before they arise. We do our best to help communicate any issues in advance to get the wine to you as quickly as possible.
We offer free shipping to anywhere in Ontario with purchase of 6 bottles or more. Purchases of less than 6 bottles can be accommodated for $10 flat rate. Please call the winery to arrange.
Out or province rates are as follows:

We believe in simplicity, so our refund policy is simple and to the point.
