  THE VINTAGE:

The 2023 vintage was one of redemption; what started out as a nail-biter concluded with a home run of a harvest. An early start to the season began in May with high temperatures and relatively arid conditions. For the summer months, the rain rolled in on a regular basis, expanding the volume of fruit on the vines and prompting growers to thin out their bunches. By September things were looking underripe given the soggy summer, but an incredibly dry and warm September and October allowed the grapes additional time to ripen late into the season. The resulting fruit was very good quality, with great flavour ripeness and moderate sugar levels to bring 2023 harvest to a happy close.

 

TASTING NOTES:

This Pét-nat sparkling wine boasts a heady nose of ripe concord grapes on the vine, wild blueberry, red liquorice, and cherry with rich aromas of buckwheat honey and clover. A vibrant and flavourful palate of cherries jubilee, bubble gum red currant and fresh grape compote all ending with an effervescent and citrusy finish.

 

TECHNICAL NOTES:

79% Concord (hand-picked from Vinemount Estate) & 21% Vidal (hand-picked from Glenview Vineyard. Both grapes were spontaneously fermented using only indigenous yeasts separately for an average of 12 days in stainless steel tanks and then blended an bottled with fermentation finished in bottle. This wine was made low intervention, with no filtering, fining or sulfur additions.
