Cave Spring Cellars "Niagara Escarpment" Pinot Noir 2018 - Ontario, Canada
Varietals: 100% Pinot Noir
The nose is highly perfumed with lifted red berry and raspberry fruit alongside nuances of tilled earth and cedar. The palate is medium bodied with a sweet, supple feel up front, followed in the middle by an elegant harmony of dark cherry fruit and nicely rounded textures. Firm, well-integrated tannins build here, carrying saturated blackberry fruit and persistent notes of black top and smoke on the finish.
Great winemaking finds its origins through a marriage of vision, passion and patience. More than three decades ago, the Pennachetti family helped to pioneer the cultivation of noble European grape varietals on the Niagara Peninsula with the planting of their first Riesling and Chardonnay vines at Cave Spring Vineyard. In the years since, Cave Spring Cellars has established itself as one of Canada’s most acclaimed wineries, earning a reputation for crafting elegant and distinctive cool-climate wines in the heart of Ontario’s wine country.
Wine is said to paint a picture on the palate of the place where it was born.

Cave Spring has established itself as one of Canada’s most acclaimed wineries. The distinct soil and climate of our vineyards on the Beamsville Bench have and will always play a critical role in the ongoing journey of crafting elegant and distinctive cool-climate wines.
