Tawse Wine & Spirits is a family-owned organic winery and distillery situated on the lower slopes of the Niagara Escarpment. Founder Moray Tawse, inspired by his love of Burgundian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, purchased 6 acres on the Cherry Avenue property in 2001, and in 2005 he opened his state-of-the-art winery complete with a six-level, gravity-flow design, geo-thermal system, and a wetland bio-filter. Since then, Tawse has become a four-time winner of the Canadian Winery of the Year award and grows grapes in five estate vineyards on over 100 acres across the Niagara region.
Tawse is focused on uniting traditional winemaking techniques with state-of-the-art technology, and dedicated to producing terroir-driven wines of exceptional elegance, depth and character.
The 2021 Skin Fermented White aka “Orange Wine” is an alluring wine that displays notes of orange blossom, lemongrass and apricot. It is made of 56% Riesling and 44% Gewürztraminer.
“Orange Wine” is a white wine that is made by leaving the grape skins and seeds in contact with the juice which creates an orange hue to the wine. These wines are often dry and bold with tannins and hints of sourness (think fruit beer!).
