“a fine, dry, skin-fermented table wine”
BEPPI CROSARIOL - THE GLOBE AND MAIL- March 7, 2019
A field blend of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grown in the Traynor vineyard in Prince Edward County. Whole cluster (skin fermented) and macerated on the skins for a little over two weeks. Pressed and racked directly into used oak barrels and left on the lees for 17 months with occasional stirring. Once it clarified enough it was racked and blended. Bottled unfiltered and by hand.
A rich orange wine that I am very proud of. Named in honour of my son Quintin who spent much of his childhood with me in the vineyard and who’s spirit has inspired me to persevere and build this winery.
This blend has a beautiful deep gold colour with notes of cooked apple honeyed and complex florality with light savoury spice. It is rich and fresh on the palate with sweet lemony citrus throughout with a long pleasant finish.
