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 Vineyard has established itself as one of Canada’s most acclaimed wineries.

Cave Spring is nestled along a gently sloping terrace of the Niagara Escarpment. Overlooking Lake Ontario, this area known as the Beamsville Bench has proven ideal for cool-climate viticulture. The soil is derived primarily from escarpment limestone, shale and sandstone, these stony clay tills are rich in minerals, yet limited in organic matter, creating the perfect balance of nutrients for growing grapes displaying character and sophistication.   The estate is a site of  many natural springs which surge from a series of caves at the foot of the escarpment. The escarpment cliffs that surround Cave Spring Vineyard capture temperate lake-effect breezes from nearby Lake Ontario, lengthening the growing season, and allowing the fruit to achieve rich, flavourful ripeness.

Tasting Notes

Medium burgundy colour with aromas of cherry, cranberry, cassis, tobacco, with nuances of cinnamon, caramel and forest floor.  Medium bodied with juicy strawberry fruit, a round attack with fine-grained, satin-like tannins mid-palate and layers of mixed berry fruit with subtle notes of sponge toffee, thyme and marjoram.  Suggested food pairings are roasted chicken, seared duck breast or pork tenderloin with berry coulis, grilled salmon, mushroom risotto or a vegetable pasta.

Method

There is about 4% Gamay added to the Pinot Noir.  The grapes are from two different sites in the Niagara Peninsula appellation, 72% Beamsville Bench and 28% Creek Shores.  2021 brought a warm growing season and turbulent autumn, delivering ripe fruit and moderate yields. Pinot Noir ripened on time, producing delicate yet well-structured wines with medium-term ageing potential.
