Blend
100% Ehrenfelser

Ehrenfelser, a unique Riesling/Sylvaner cross of German origin, is perfectly suited for our Lakeshore microclimate, mimicking its ancestral home on the steep slopes of the Rhine River. Harvested from a stony block in our upper vineyard, the 13 – 16-year-old vines produce low yields with intense concentrated orange and mandarin notes. The cool growing season resulted in an intense wine with bright acidity and juicy freshness. Eleven percent of the wine was fermented in neutral oak barrel and spent 4 months on lees to lend richness and texture to the wine.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Most intense profile from an Ehrenfelser we’ve ever had. Concentrated orange and mandarin, floral. Juicy freshness with vibrant acidity.
Vineyard Notes
Above average growing degree days in the spring contributed to an early budbreak. Cooler days and evenings arrived in August, which slowed down the ripening of the grapes and allowed for greater flavour development while retaining freshness and acidity.
Production Notes
268 cases produced.
Winemaker Notes
Enjoy now or cellar until 2022.
Food Pairing Notes
Spiced foods, picnic fare, great as an aperitif as well.
