Since planting its first vineyard in 1996, Malivoire has pioneered an innovative, eco-centric and sustainable approach to wine growing on the Beamsville Bench in the Niagara Peninsula.  Malivoire currently draws the largest share of its grapes from several vineyards comprising a combined 40 hectares. These are located within the Beamsville Bench, Lincoln Lakeshore, Vinemount Ridge and Twenty Mile Bench Sub-designated Viticultural Areas, which lie within the Niagara Peninsula’s Niagara Escarpment Sub-appellation. 

Shiraz Mottiar is the head winemaker at Malivoire. He studied Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture at Brock University and was a member of its’ first graduating class in 2000.  After graduation, he joined the staff of Malivoire as a cellar hand and within a year he had been promoted to Assistant Winemaker.  In 2002 Shiraz was given temporary leave to take his skills to the Yarra Valley of Australia for a vintage abroad before. 

In 2021 Malivoire was recognised by the National Wine Awards of Canada as winery of the year after it claimed a total of 17 medals in that year’s competition by a panel of expert judges in a field of 260 competitors, including the most Platinums ever awarded to one winery. 

Tasting Notes

A delicate and refined nose hinting at ripe pineapple with underlying citrus (lemon and grapefruit), Granny Smith apple and a trace of vanilla from oak.  The palate has a creamy texture lifted up by vibrant acidity.  Green apple, tropical and citrus fruit extends to the palate along with flavours of baked apple and a squeeze of fresh lime.  A versatile white wine that would compliment a range of foods; pork chops, chicken tacos, grilled fish.     


This vintage is composed of  70% Chardonnay, 30% Chardonnay Musque (a more aromatic clone of Chardonnay).  Made sustainably grown entirely hand-picked fruit, the wine consists 64% of Chardonnay from the Moira Vineyard and 6% Chardonnay from the Mottiar Vineyard, and 30% of Chardonnay Musque from the Malivoire Estate site, selected to contribute aromatics to the final product.   The grapes were destemmed before pressing, 70% of the juice underwent primary and partial malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, while the remainder vinified in neutral French oak barrels.  After 11 months, the portions were combined and bottled in August 2023.
