Winemaking Notes

Crafted in the Traditional method, from 100% Pinot Noir grapes from the Laundry Family Vineyard, this wine spent 3 years aging on lees. A very elegant and pleasing wine with aromas of ripe fruit and brioche, reminiscent of strawberry shortcake. At first the palate shows sweet notes and a creamy mouthfeel. The finish is generous, tart and crisp.

Growing Conditions

From the 15-year old vines of the Laundry Vineyard. Farmed sustainably. Viticultural practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, leaf thinning and hand-harvesting. Hand disgorged.

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

Rick VacSickle

Another single-vineyard sparkler from Tawse that sources this 100% Pinot Noir from the sustainably farmed Laundry Vineyard. It shows a vibrant and fresh nose of strawberries, lemon, grapefruit, biscuit, lovely minerality/salinity and creamy notes from three years of lees aging. It has a firm acidic spine that keeps the citrus, green apple, yellow pear and grapefruit lively and fresh through the finish. There is a vein of flinty minerality that shines on the mid-palate.
