Full lees fermentation of our finest Ontario whites: Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewurztraminer. Fermented and aged in stainless steel. The co-­fermentation of the lees allows us to produce a remarkably well integrated blend (vs. the blending of already finished wines). Named Calcaire in homage to the calcareous limestone which provide the stony minerality in this wine.
Lively notes of passionfruit and fresh white flower give way to a richness in the palate without straying far from the focused minerality which is the backbone of this wine. A perfect refresher for spring and summer, Calcaire will really sing with its perfect match-­shellfish.

A delicous mineral driven summer sipper, ideal for those yet to come lazy hot summer days.
Pre-fermentation blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Melon de Bourgogne juice (a house secret not to be divulged... Possibly if you have a bottle of Romanee-Conti in hand). Fermented cold on heavy lees to highlight the terrific minerality and limestone notes, hence the name Calcaire.
While initially the wine has wonderful lemon-lime refreshing notes, the palate has beguiling depth and richness while remaining very linear and focussed. The classic county minerality makes this the perfect oyster wine. Suggested Drinkability Window: Now through 2015.
