A crispy Riesling, a savoury rosé and a light and lifted Pinot show that great things DO grow in Ontario.

A crispy Riesling, a savoury rosé and a light and lifted Pinot show that great things DO grow in Ontario.

Pinot Noir, Niagara, Ontario | Thomas Bachelder studied in Burgundy before returning to Ontario to make the powerfully enigmatic & aromatic wines he encountered overseas. From the Niagara Peninsula, the Parfum is definitely Burgundian in style thanks to the open secret that is Niagara’s incredible soils. Gorgeous and well-balanced with notes of silky dark perfumed fruit, third-wave Ethiopian coffee & chalky rocks. Drinks awful quick with near-universal proclamations of “Delicious!”

Pinot Noir, Gamay, Merlot & Lemberger, Niagara, Ontario | Another idiosyncratic classic from the habitual linesteppers at Pearl Morissette, this dark rosé has flirted with being a light red but has instead chosen to bring rigour to the world of whimsical rosés! An unapologetic laugh in the face of being taken lightly, which we love. Grapes, from classic - light Gamay and plush Merlot - to adventurous - move over Austria, Ontario is here with its own take of Lemberger aka spicy and round Blaufrankisch! - spend a brief staycation on their skins before fermenting separately in concrete, texture-giving tanks. They're later blended, aged for another two months in tank to ~come together~ & bottled unfined and unfiltered. Lipstick kiss on the vanity, cherry Lipsmacker, cherry pot pie, ushy gushy strawberry with an offbeat kick in its step until you realize that it’s totally dry and thus, totally lean & sexy despite the aforementioned exuberance. An all-weather rosé with the freshness of a white & the structure of a red, pair with pork tenderloin, the white meat of red meats, another genre-bender!

Riesling, Niagara, Ontario | Before you run for the hills, yes, this is an off-dry Riesling with a luscious ‘lil kiss of sweetness and there’s nothing wrong with that! When balanced with tart fruit and fresh, nervy acid, a slightly sweet Riesling can sing, especially when paired with spicy foods, a big ‘ole Croque Monsieur, or even apple and pork – delish! Low in alcohol, high in Great Gatsby glamour and aged for 9 months on the lees in tank, this opulent white is a muse to be mused upon. Petrol straight from a ‘69 DeVille, white silk florals, the ‘honey’ in honeycrisp & a sweet croon of luminescent acid tying it all together. Goes best with gold fringe & tiny little hor d’oeuvres on gleaming silver trays.
