Country: Canada

Region: Niagara

Appellation: Niagara Peninsula VQA

Nose: White flowers and dewey orchard fruit, citrus and green  apple. Slight matchstick reduction

Winemaking Notes: Whole cluster fermentation in a combination of foudre, old and new oak barrels. Aged on lees for 20 months in fermentation vessel

Producer Notes: Pearl Morissette has been spearheading the low-intervention wine movement in Niagara since their founding. They farm organically (although without the certification) and use no new oak, fermenting and aging in stainless steel, concrete and neutral wood. Their wines are true expressions of Niagara terroir, choosing to celebrate their origin rather than emulate the wines of Europe

Area Notes: Niagara Peninsula is the overarching VQA appellation that encompasses most wine made in Niagara, with a number of sub-appelations throughout
