Winemaker’s Notes:
This Burgundy grape is one of the oldest varieties cultivated by man. On Pelee Island it thrives in a microclimate that enjoys the longest growing season with the greatest amount of heat units in Canada.

A medium red wine with a leather/ tobacco aroma and a distinctive tannic finish.

This wine is best served at room temperature with grilled or roasted red meat, game, ham, roast pork or grilled Atlantic salmon.

GRAPES: 85% Pinot Noir, 15% Zweigelt
ALCOHOL: 12.5%
VQA Ontario

Price: 750 mL $12.75

    This is a fantastic value for a Pinot Noir.

    It is quite complex too. Shortly after opening I got the typical wet forest floor nose which followed through to the taste. Letting the wine sit for a while it became a bit more fruity with hints of freshly picked strawberries along side some wonderful herbaceous notes.

    Soft tannins noted near the medium length finish.

    Like Pinot? Buy this one, in fact since it is selling at just under $13, buy a few.
