François Morissette is making wine in Niagara for those who appreciate his approach of minimal-intervention, purity, and low sulphur.  He is classically trained, having worked and studied in Burgundy, France with some of the masters of the craft.  He attempts to uncover the inherent nature of each and every vintage. The grapes are hand-picked solely on the basis of skin maturity and Francois Morisette and his team guide the the wine, rather than fix it along the way. 

Tasting Notes

64% Riesling, 22% Chardonnay and 14% Gewurztraminer. The Gewurztraminer was fermented on skins in qvevri for a total of 6 months, the Riesling fermented in stainless steel, while the Chardonnay was fermented in concrete and aged for 6 months in foudre.  The wine was then blended and allowed to rest for another 3 months before being  bottled un-fined and unfiltered. 

An intense and complex aromatic white wine with enveloping perfume that shines with golden nuance and delicate floral notes. The palate flows in unexpected ways – caressing yet unrelenting; lively, yet smooth.
