A light, vin-de-soif take on Cabernet Sauvignon. Lots of dark fruit and graphite: drink slightly chilled.

Varietal(s): 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Country: Canada

Region: Niagara

Appellation: Lincoln Lakeshore

Nose: Plum, black currant, violets, touch of graphite and smoke

Palate: Blackberry, black currant, earth and leather. Powdery, fine tannins, great acidity

Winemaking Notes: Destemmed and vinified in large concrete tanks. Aged on lees in concrete and large wooden vessel for 8 months. Unfined and unfiltered

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: Lincoln Lakeshore stretches along the shore of Lake Ontario for around 18km. The lake has a strong temperature moderating effect, and leads to constantly circulating air over the region. A long, even growing period results
