This is a magnificent Ontario Chardonnay that can stand against any white Burgundy in its price range. Light straw in colour with a green tint; a nose of minerals, apple and lemon with an almond note. Elegant, beautifully balanced; fresh and lively on the palate with great length.
Dark ruby. Black fruits have the advantage over the oak in a very elegant nose. Medium-bodied, it shows more finesse than the 2008, in part due to an extra year of evolution, but the 2008 vintage provided more concentration due to lower yields. Drinks well right now, but you can wait a few more years.
These rocky hillside estate grapes (50% Cab Sauv, 27% Merlot, 23% Cab Franc) saw a mix of French and American oak (60% new). Bold floral, dark fruit and sweet tobacco aromas. Mouth-filling, full-bodied palate, rich with cassis, cocoa and fig, and finishing with spice and sweet vanilla. Hold to integrate the ripe tannins.
Lots of power and flavour here. Dense ruby in colour with a blackcurrant and cedar bouquet. Full-bodied, earthy, mouth-filling with a mocha chocolate flavour.
This blend of 5 local Douro grape varieties offers lightly fruity and floral scents and gentle flavours of melon and pear. Moderate alcohol and medium weight makes it a fine aperitif.
Lightly buttery citrus with a splash of vanilla on the nose and bright lemon citrus playing through on the palate, supported by focused minerality and lively crisp acidity. Finishes with long, clean citrus and a lightly accented trace of butterscotch.
