90 Pts - Rick VanSickle
It has lovely texture and verve on the palate with a flavour profile of lime, grapefruit pith, cider, apple skin and flint.
91 Pts - Michael Godel
“Fine acidity sits right up front, is malo inhibited, very Rheinhessen in its lime and texture. Something tropical comes, like mango so more Germanic in this sense, although the acids are purely Niagara and the herbology acquiesces to fruit coming out, clean as anything and nuanced. Drink 2019-2024.”


Harvested on October 19th, 2017 from the Hughes Vineyard in Niagara. Fermented naturally on skins for 13 days prior to pressing. As the wine fermented the skins were punched down daily for gentle extraction. Aged in a combination of stainless steel and neutral oak for four months before blending.

Expressing the vibrancy of fruit from the Hughes Vineyard, this wine was fermented on the skins for 13 days before pressing. Austere and mineral-driven with notes of citrus, white pepper and honey.VQA Lincoln Lakeshore VQA
