Winemaker's Notes

Fresh, clean, steely and vibrant with floral orange blossom, fruit cocktail and lime zest aromas. A taste invites a flavour-burst of grapefruit and lemon, green apple and pear, leaving an edgy, palate-cleansing, citrusy aftertaste.

This unique (for Niagara) Melon de Bourgogne was whole cluster pressed and aged in stainless steel tank with extended lees contact. It shows zesty lime, fresh peach, perfumed pear and lemon blossoms on the nose. It’s steely and vibrant on the palate and loaded with ripe orchard fruits, zesty citrus and a lingering, fresh finish. Summer in a glass!
