Fragrant aromas of pineapple, honey and spiced pear rise over top nuances of rose water and white flower. Dry and medium bodied, the palate shows grapefruit pith on the attack, with a round, viscous feel in the middle that wraps around the wine’s firm, chalky core and delicate acidity.

Great winemaking finds its origins through a marriage of vision, passion and patience. More than three decades ago, the Pennachetti family helped to pioneer the cultivation of noble European grape varietals on the Niagara Peninsula with the planting of their first Riesling and Chardonnay vines at Cave Spring Vineyard. In the years since, Cave Spring Cellars has established itself as one of Canada’s most acclaimed wineries, earning a reputation for crafting elegant and distinctive cool-climate wines in the heart of Ontario’s wine country.
