2020 Maenad Wine Co. Skin Fermented Chardonnay
St. David's Bench, Niagara

This Chardonnay was hand picked from the St. David's Bench sub-appellation, then de-stemmed with partial crushing and fermented on skins for 14 days. The wine then went through malolactic fermentation in mostly neutral French oak barrels with a small portion in stainless steel. Aged 7 months before bottling.
This wine’s inspiration is texture! Structure from tannins in the skins, combined with a certain roundness and richness creates an overall balance and textural experience. Tons of beautiful Niagara stone fruit, complex and layered.
Unfiltered and bottled with lees. No Sulphites added.
2021 Paradise Grapevine Paradiso
Niagara, Ontario

Notes from our friends at Paradise:

2021 Paradiso is made from organic (non-certified) grapes we sourced from two of our favourite vineyards in Niagara-On-The-Lake - the Jenkins Vineyard and the Willms Vineyard. Quinton Jenkins has always farmed his grapes without the use of synthetic chemicals, and after working with Erv and Esther Willms in 2020 we've managed to convince them to farm our grapes organically as well (humble brag)! This isn't the first wine we've made using hybrid grapes - Vidal this time. Because of their natural resistance to pests and fungi they require way (way) fewer organic sprays and are less susceptible to extreme weather swings (and therefore climate change!). The wine itself went through a cool 10-day maceration on the skins, beginning to ferment when we delicately pressed the fruit. We finished off fermentation in stainless steel at controlled temperatures before sending the finished wine to our neutral French barrels for aging. The wine itself is lean and soft with a restrained profile of lime popsicles, orange peel, lavender and mint. We like drinking it ice cold with wasabi peas but you do you!

2019 Santini Collective Bourgogne Aligoté
Auxey-Duresses, Burgundy, France

This orange wine is textural, chewy and puckering. So very refreshing. Lime, alpine herbs, fennel. Lots of all of that. Chalked full of salty minerality. Exceptional length and depth yet insane freshness and vitality. Has such energy and drinkability. Serious orange wine!
