Pelee Island Winery Chardonnay Blend Ontario Vqa Eco Trail Chardonnay Auxerrois 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Pelee Island is Canadas largest independent winery and also the largest estate vineyard covering 600 acres; Nestled in the western basin of Lake Erie, Pelee Island is Canadas Southern most inhabited tip of land. Home to over 10,000 indigenous species, Pelee Island is the environmental pride of Canada; Below the 41st parallel, it is as far south as Mendocino, California, Rome and Madrid and is Canada's warmest region with a growing season over 50 days longer than mainland Canada. No insecticides are used in the vineyards and only a 100% island grown natural fertilizer, sorghum soudan grass, is applied. Vintage: Grape: 85% Cabernet Franc and 15% Chambourcin Vinification: The Chambourcin grapes used for this wine were left on the vine until they had reached 20.8° brix, and the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were harvested at 21.2° brix. Alc: 12%. RS: 8.6g/l Serve: A great wine to be enjoyed with friends around a dinner table Taste: Eco trail is carefully crafted blend of Chambourcin and Cabernet Franc. This wine combines the characteristics of dried berry fruit and light cherry notes with fine tannins and vanilla aromas.
