"Petrol, wet river stone, love. Outboard motor on a lovely lazy summer's day ... trust me, this is a great thing. Close your eyes. Have I ever led you astray? Drink. Peach stone. Stop thinking" Natalie Maclean

The greatest kept secret of Ontario: killer, worldclass Riesling. This Riesling is a blend of Niagara and County fruit, capturing the best of both appellations: from the County exhilarating acid, and a bright, ethereal palate; the Niagara fruit anchors the wine with an array of ripe fruit aromas, flavours and a weight on the palate to perfectly balance the lively acid. This wine will be delicious drunk young on a summer patio, showing a depth of primary fruit, or cellared for several years, allowing complex petrol and lanolin notes to develop.

Norman Hardie is one of a select few winemakers in the world who has mastered the art of tasting, growing and making wine in both Hemispheres and six wine regions around the world.

In his early twenties he received his sommelier certification from the esteemed wine program at the University of Dijon in Burgundy and put his skills to work as a sommelier for Four Seasons Hotels for six years. His insatiable thirst to master the art of winemaking led him on a six year journey apprenticing for the very best producers/winemakers of cool climate varieties in Burgundy, South Africa, Oregon, New Zealand and California.

Whole cluster press of individual vineyard sites. Each block is fermented separately at cool temperatures in stainless steel. Blend of County (15%) and Niagara fruit (85%). Aged 4 months in stainless.

Food Pairing: A fabulous anytime wine, perfect alongside fresh seafood or chicken dishes.
