Our Mountainview series of wines are a dedication to place, as great terroir is a key ingredient in winemaking. Our location on the Beamsville Bench is a place like no other, with history millions of years in the making. Once the shoreline of Lake Ontario, this region is abound with minerals and heavy soils. The heavy clay forces the vines to work harder and dig deeper for food and water, at times pushing to more than 30 feet deep. With such deep rootstocks, these vines typically produce better fruit.
All of our Mountainview wines are limited in production and vinified using the best fruit of a given vintage.
Our Mountainview Pinot Noir has a complex nose with notes of cherry, raspberry, nutmeg and licorice. The oak treatment is subtle giving the terroir the opportunity to express itself, yet adds a spice and toasty characteristic to the wine. This is a Pinot Noir that can be savoured and enjoyed over the course of an evening.
We enjoy pairing this Pinot Noir with pan seared Muscovy Duck breast and duck fat roasted fingerling potatoes. It also pairs beautifully with a baked brie.
