WINERY FOCUS

Cave Spring has been awineryworth watching

for years – 25 years, in fact, since they first

planted vines on the Beamsville Bench. While

their focus is mainly on white wines, including

this crisp Pinot Gris grown in breezy, lake-

cooled vineyards, they also produce fine reds

such as this Cab Franc that shows off mint-

berry flavours typical of this grape variety in

the local terroir.

Vineland Estates is another long-standing

local winery. Since their first vintage in 1983,

they’ve made a name for themselves with top

Rieslings and a fine-dining restaurant. But

there’s much more to the story than that, as

this Cab Franc with deep berry flavours,

and this delicately balanced Vidal Icewine,

will attest.

SELECTIONS

Thanks in part to its cool climate, Ontario is

a great place to grow the finicky Pinot Noir

grape. This 2015 from Stoney Ridge –

which was one of only 18 licensed wineries

in Ontario back when it was established in

1985 – is elegant and silky with flavours of

beetroot, cedar spice and wild strawberry.

DEALS TO DISCOVER

Awonderful wine for the holidays, this is

a crowd-pleaser and a wallet-pleaser.

It’s bright and refreshing with flavours of

ripe peach and apricot and will pair well

with turkey dinner – but at this price, you

may want to buy extra and save them

for the patio next summer, too.
