Great wine from a boutique NP-VQA winery with linage to old vines. Nose on opening of honeydew melon. Initially a taste of fresh cut Apple 🍏
As it opens the transition is to Meyer Lemons with mid point of white grapefruit & finish of white stone minerality.
The wine body is light with a finish that’s crisp & clean. Cheers🥂 — 4 days ago
The nose is oak and vanilla but also fresh. Lots of oaky goodness on the palette, as well as a real punch and strength. An awesome experience! — 14 days ago
This is exactly what it’s supposed to be. Problem is that it’s not exactly what I want in wine. Dessert Wine: yes yes the syrupy aroma clearly lets you know what’s ahead. The fruit flavors are hidden behind the nectar but full flavored and fulfilling its purpose. — 17 days ago

My first Canadian wine and it is a doozy. Light purple with plenty of fizz to it. This is a wild, untamed wine and you get that message right from the start. The barnyard funk is immediate and deep. Earth and forest woodland is all over this with fresh blueberries and raspberries. The spice is warm and there’s a sense of pine nuts and mushrooms. Wild funky stuff.
Mostly Cabernet Franc with some Pinot Noir from Niagara, this is avant-garde stuff. You could try to write it off as natural, or Beaujolais like, but that doesn’t really cover it. It’s clear that this is the work of someone who knows what the hell they’re doing, absolutely nothing amateurish here. As wild as it is there is nice structure here, this is not at all a lazy wine. Complexity is abundant with menthol and untamed red fruit notes. Sit with this one for a while. Let it breathe, let it speak to you. You will be rewarded. Very unique. — 17 days ago
