2016 Hungry Point Pinot Noir

VQA: Prince Edward County

This wine shows red berry jam fruit and toasty characters on the nose; on the palate tart cranberry and cherry jam along with dry herbs, lightly smoked character and has firm but not overpowering tannins.

A longer cold soak (7 days) pulled colour without rough bitterness. Cuvaison took place in small closed fermentors and some open top small lot bins for punchdowns using native yeast. The Hungry Point Pinot Noir spent 15 months in French oak.

This ultimate food wine pairs extremely well with dishes that have an earthy tone, for example rosemary sautéed wild mushrooms, or game meat like duck confit! This Pinot Noir also goes nicely with vegetables that have a touch of sweetness; try a glass with just a simple beet salad, or a margarita pizza.

"Produced from fruit of dry-farmed vines then aged 15 months in French oak, this ruby-red Pinot offers notes of smoke, red cherry, pomegranate and spice. Dry, medium bodied, there's a touch of smoke, earthy beetroot, red cherry/berry with notes of herbs and spice adding complexity. Tannin provides structure while clean acidity provides freshness and balance. You can cellar this short term or pair now with roast duck and a cherry reduction." Susan Desjardins, winecurrent.com

"A nose of swirling cherry, savoury spice, red plum and a core of minerality. It's gorgeous on the palate, though shy at first, it opens up to brambly cherry-raspberry fruit, fine oak spice, layers of fruit and crisp acidity. Classic County Pinot Noir."
Score 91 Rick Vansickle, winesinniagara.com

"The first pinot noir release under winemaker Dan Sullivan's new line of small lot, minimalist artisanal wines. The name "Hungry Point" refers to the plot of land on which the winery sits - locals were known to have said "If you're farming out on the point you'll go hungry". Indeed, the harsh conditions faced by farmers on this windswept, rocky, dry outcropping of land are not exaggerated. And from this difficult point hails this bright cherry red pinot noir with good intensity of colour. The nose is quite generous with black and red cherry, rhubarb, bramble, dried leaf and tobacco. The palate is dry and savoury with impressive depth, verve and surprising length. A terrific example of the expressive, vibrant and complex nature of the pinots the County can birth. Good value."

"Love this style of Pinot Noir from the County! Sour cherry and tart cranberry make your mouth water, which is exactly what you need for so many dishes from grilled chicken to planked salmon. Medium-bodied, silky smooth."
Score 89 Natalie MacLean, nataliemaclean.com

"This is balanced on a pin and full of flavour, finesse and oodles of charm. Winemaker Dan Sullivan waved his magic wand over this gem-cold-soaked fruit was indigenous - yeast fermented spending 15 months in French oak. It's a gorgeous expression of Pinot Noir showcasing balance, structure and purity of fruit. Aromas of red pepper jelly and toasty bits herald a river of fruit flavour with briary berry, peppery notes and red cherry to the fore. It finishes in a blaze with a lengthy, sweet and tang aftertaste." 4 stars Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com

"A whole lot of scenting going on in this PEC Pinot Noir, from espresso and paint to lavender, chalk and stone. The feathery shed of volatility is a welcome whiff for those who like a touch of VA. The Hungry, hungry Pinot is clear, pure and precise. It tosses a dart into the Pinot heart. More like a beef heart within its potency and virility. Only PEC makes Pinot like this and Dan Sullivan has captured the style without voracious or rapacious compromise. Nothing greedy about the treatment, just a minor covet of high-toned excellence."
Score 89 Michael Godel, WineAlign.ca

The magic elixir of calcareous limestone, well drained clay soils and temperate growing conditions are what make our corner of the world perfect for growing outstanding, characterful Pinot Noir. Picked from our West and South vineyards between late September and the first week of October the cool summer allowed our fruit to ripen slowly with exceptionally thick and well developed skins while still holding good acidity.

2014 JCR Rosehall Vineyard Pinot Noir

VQA: Prince Edward County

This wine shows delicate red berries and hints of earthy undertone on the nose; on the palate layered berry-plum, black tea, fresh herbs and toasty vanilla with a lively acidity, earthy minerality and a long lingering finish.

As with all of our JCR bottlings, this Pinot Noir was selected barrel by barrel from the 2014 Harvest of Estate Grown fruit, aging in our cellar blasted deep in the PEC limestone. Aged in French oak, predominantly 265 L hogsheads, about 60% new oak was used and it remained in barrel on fine lees without racking for nearly 17 months. The final blend was assembled with no fining or filtration prior to bottling.

Our JCR Pinot Noir is very versatile, pairing nicely with hearty mushroom dishes, grilled salmon, game meat, duck breast or rack of lamb. Enjoy with charcuterie and varieties of semi-hard, medium-aged cheeses.

"This is a light pinot, very much in the PEC style. It is also utterly charming. Expect pale ruby colour. The nose shows lifted cran-cherry, floral and gently applied oak spice, toast and vanillin. All well fitted. It's light bodied in the pinot realm but right on cue for the County, especially in this lighter vintage. It's pretty, even and the length is excellent."

2015 Merlot Cabernet Franc

VQA: Twenty Mile Bench Single Vineyard

This succulent red delivers flavours of wild berries, cherries and vanilla with a hint of oak

The 2015 Vintage was a tough one for County grape growers due to a severe frost at the end of May.

Perfect with barbeque steak, roasted meats and grilled vegetables.

The grapes for this blend were all sourced from a single vineyard in the Twenty Mile Bench region of Niagara. The Cabernet Franc and Merlot vines are over 25 years old.

2016 Hungry Point Unoaked Chardonnay

VQA: PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY

Medium bodied with bright citrusy aromas; flavours through the mid-palate are lemon zest, pear and peach with hints of grapefruit lingering on the finish. Superbly well balanced.

As with our previous vintages of Hungry Point, this Chardonnay was fermented cold in stainless steel to preserve the aromatics and fresh fruit character. Bottled March 2017.

Try with raw or lightly cooked seafood like crab and prawns, great with oysters, lightly buttered pasta or risotto with mushrooms, or any simply prepared white meat, like lemon chicken or roasted pork.

All of the Chardonnay in this wine is grown at Rosehall Run from vines planted between 2002 and 2007 with a healthy proportion (25%) of Chardonnay Musqué.

2014 JCR Rosehall Vineyard Chardonnay

VQA: Prince Edward County

This full-bodied Chardonnay shows bright tree fruit with hints of tropical fruit along with toasty vanilla on the nose; on the palate is dry, lively acidity with lush creamy oak character, richly layered with pear, peach, sweet pineapple vanilla oak flavours with a long creamy lingering finish.

Fermented in 500 L puncheons (the size we now use for all of our Estate grown Chardonnay), seven were ultimately deemed worthy of JCR designation. This Chardonnay spent over 500 days in barrel sur lie in mostly undisturbed meditation. Careful racking and unhurried elevage meant we were able to bottle this Chardonnay with the absolute minimum of filtration.

This wine pairs nicely with rich dishes such as Pumpkin Ravioli or Butternut Squash Soup, Wild Mushroom Risotto or Cilantro-Lime Chicken. Feeling a little adventurous? Pair this chardonnay with dessert such as White Chocolate Mousse Cake or White Opéra Cake.

"The 2013 is showing very sleek lines and fine integration and balance. The nose is some spiked with apple-pear fruit nicely layered amid lemon, butterscotch, peat smoke and gentle clove. Classic chardonnay aromas. It's 13% alcohol but feels lighter thanks to lacy acidity and County minerality; really quite stony on the finish. Scores on balance and elegance." Score 91 David Lawrason, WineAlign.com

"This delivers persistent purity of fruit, deft balance, firm structure, integrated oak and a delectable, lengthy aftertaste of monumental proportions. Baking spice, flinty/mineral notes and ripe orchard fruit aromas herald a medium-bodied, nicely textured, tang-laden stream of lemon curd, white nectarine and peach skin on the palate and finish. Winemaker/co-owner Dan Sullivan hits the bulls-eye with this barrel-select, fabulous offering....Bravo." Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com

"An elegant chardonnay sourced from the estate's JCR vineyards. Subtle but complex with savory notes of saline along with nervy acids. Flavours of baked pear, lemon, apple, hay and very light, delicate oak are interlaced on the palate. The freshness and purity of fruit is very indicative of County fruit. The finish is just slightly toasty with very good length." Score 90 Sara d'Amato, WineAlign.com

2016 Hungry Point Pinot Gris

VQA: Prince Edward County Estate Grown and Bottled

The Pinot Gris was hand picked and sorted and lightly pressed with minimal skin contact. The juice was cold settled and two thirds was barreled down into neutral 500L oak puncheons with some light settling lees. The juice fermented and rested on the lees for 4 months. The balance was left to ferment in stainless steel. The final blend was bottled in March 2017.

The land where we chose to establish our roots was previously known by local farmers as "Hungry Point" where conditions were dry, winds were harsh and shallow rooted plants did not always thrive. It turns out vinifera grapes are right at home here. The vines dig deep into the earth gathering enough water and nutrition from the mineral-rich clay to produce ripe, concentrated fruit.

The summer of 2016 was exceptionally dry and there were concerns about stress on the 4th leaf Pinot Gris vines that were now bearing fruit. We hand watered the rooting zone using a watering lance once, in late July, the only time we have ever irrigated here at RRV in our 16-year history. It proved to be a timely bit of love as the vines sailed through to harvest yielding aa conservative yield of 1.4 T/acre.

Sourced from estate Pinot Gris planed in our West Vineyard 2013 as well as a small block of vines that was planted in 2001.

2016 Hungry Point Sauvignon Blanc

VQA: Prince Edward County

Two thirds of the juice was fermented in stainless steel resting on lees for six months. The remaining 500 L was barrel fermented in a new Acacia wood barrel for the same duration. The resulting wine was bottled on May 1 of this year.

We hand watered the rooting zone using a watering lance once, in late July, the only time we have ever irrigated here at RRV in our 16-year history. It proved to be a timely bit of love as the vines sailed through to harvest yielding about 2 T/acre.

Our original test plot of 130 Sauvignon Blanc vines dates back to our very beginning in 2001, making it the oldest of this varietal in PEC. (In previous years, these grapes were used for blending). Dan was encouraged enough by the quality of the fruit to plant another 1000 vines parcel in 2013 followed by another 300 vines the following year.

2015 The Righteous Dude Riesling

VQA: Twenty Mile Bench

The nose welcomes with fresh citrus fruit perfume and the palate responds with vibrant lemon-lime, yellow pear, peach and a touch of minerality with citrusy fruit and a touch of rounded honey flavour on the finish.

The Dude abides by the code less is more. Less work and fuss fermenting; more flavour and balance in the bottle.

This well-balanced Riesling is very food friendly but also the perfect choice for just sipping. Dishes that pair nicely with this Riesling are any seafood or white meat dishes with a citrusy but uncomplicated sauce such as Lemon Caper Halibut, Rare Seared Tuna with Lemon sea salt or Chicken Piccata.

"There's an expressive nose here-pretty floral notes, aromas of peach and a whiff of citrus. Tasty fruit is the signature of this just off-dry, juicy light-medium-bodied gem-lemon-lime, crunchy green apple and ripe pear ride a backbone of vibrant acidity. Lively and refreshing on the finish, this is a great wine to serve with soft cheese or with pork schnitzel." Susan Desjardins, winecurrent.com

Our Righteous Dude Riesling is sourced from a single vineyard block in Niagara's Twenty Mile Bench dolomite soil.

CEREMONY Blanc De Blanc Brut

VQA: Prince Edward County

This wine possesses delicate, toasty, mineral-tinged aromas of poached pear/apple and honeydew; on the palate, vibrant and long persistent fine bubbles are laced with flavours of dry yet fruity with lively citrus and toasty almond undertone with a distinctive minerality on the finish.

A versatile match for many foods such as savoury hors d'oeuvres, fresh herb chicken or seafood pasta with light cream sauce. Classic pairing with sushi or deep fried calamari and of course, oysters.

"Bracing citrus aromas meld with leesy notes and flecks of minerality on the nose of this methode traditionelle, estate-grown, 100% Chardonnay sparkling wine. Tangy lemon citrus dominates the initial sip with crisp green apple and hints of lime joining the party on the palate and infusing the mouth-watering finish. This is crisp and refreshing, perfect as a welcoming wine, served with appetizers or alongside fish or seafood." Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com

"The nose has a lovely biscuit note to go with lemon chiffon, fresh citrus, brioche and toasted vanilla. The tiny, vigorous bubbles are persistent in the glass and the sparkler shows bright acidity which gives a lift to the fresh lemon-citrus and green apple flavours. This is an austere style of sparkling wine that's clean and invigorating through the finish. It would benefit from a year or two in the cellar." Score 91 Rick Vansickle, winesinNiagara.com

A little ceremonial joy in the division here with Dan Sullivan taking some fizz chances to create a new PEC sparkling order. A multiple vintage cuvée from estate grown fruit of weight, substance, tang, drive, a shot put of citrus, servitude to PEC Chardonnay, certitude to B de B style and structure. Just enough pierce to go through and come out clean, even in the face of oxidative time, on the other side. Dips into the well of Champagne to recover its fearless tactility. These are bubbles that "travel first and lean towards this time." Timing is everything. Drink 2016-2021. Score 91 Michael Godel, WineAlign.com

"Ceremony is a traditional method sparkling wine from multiple vintages made entirely of Prince Edward County grown chardonnay. Notes of fennel, rosebud and pear on the nose with a crisp, mouthwatering palate. Mineral and crunchy saline along with white grapefruit and lemongrass refresh and linger on the finish. Ageing in large, 500 litre barrels adds a slight toastiness that enhances the yeasty, autolytic element in the wine. Elegant and memorable." Score 90 Sara d'Amato, WignAlign.com

"This is a well-balanced, rich and flavourful sparkling chardonnay, made from fully ripe grapes with high flavour intensity, yet vibrant acids and fine tension and energy. Length and depth are superb, and dosage is well measured. A great addition to the growing line-up of quality County bubbles." Score 90 John Szabo, WineAlign.com
