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

Finely concentrated aromas present blackberry, date, kirsch and plum, with trimmings of chocolate, nutmeg and cedar dust.  Hefty and smooth as the glass is tipped, prolonged flavours recall baked dark fruits, hazelnut, caramel and spice.   Enjoy now through 2033 and beyond; this wine is built to age.

Method

Picked at the Stouck Family Vineyard on October 21st as grape sugars averaged 22.8° Brix.  Primary and malo-lactic fermentation were completed in mature American and French oak barrels.  From the press, the young wine was returned to barrels, one-third of which were new, to age until March 2023, when 99 cases were filled.
