Winemaking Notes

Unlike previous vintages, the juice was pressed off without any skin contact. The nose has perfume-like floral notes with sweet guava aromas. The palate is sweet and well-balanced with a beautifully enveloping mouthfeel and flavours of peach compote and ripe quava. There is a noticeable sweetness on the finish.

Growing Conditions

Viticultural practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand leaf removal and hand harvest. This is the seventh vintage of Gewurztraminer from the organically and biodynamically farmed Quarry Road Vineyard. This is our heaviest crop yet - the grapes were picked later than usual also.

All prices include Ontario bottle deposits; $0.20 for bottles of 750 mL and $0.10 for bottles of 375 mL and less.
