Henry of Pelham
Late Harvest Vidal 2019 (375 ml)
Niagara’s seasons are very delineated. Summer is warm and autumn is cool followed by a quick shift to winter’s cold; these are the perfect conditions for producing Icewine and Late Harvest wines, and especially so in the Short Hills Bench. The estate produces Late Harvest wine only at the highest level (called Special Select Late Harvest). Specifically that means the fruit is harvested at 32 brix or more but without conditions placed on temperature at harvest.
WINEMAKER’S NOTES: Intense, vibrant lychee fruit and fresh peach aromas and flavours. Made from Henry of Pelham’s estate vineyards in the Short Hills Bench. Yields are low, usually around 45 hL/ha. Harvested at temperatures between -4 to -8°C. Fermented and aged in stainless steel.
FOOD PAIRINGS: Fruit based desserts and soft cheeses.
