Tasting notes

Connect has been a part of the Southbrook family since 2008. Green tree fruit and white floral notes burst forward, and while dry, said fruitiness gives the Connect a light-bodied, easy-drinking mouthfeel.

Pairing

While you will absolutely enjoy this organic white chilled with light fare or appetizers, the Connect also shines as a solo sipping wine, rain or shine.

Producer Description

Southbrook Vineyards is the epitome and evolution of Bill Redelmeier's love story with wine, the land, and all things “local.” The winery is situated on a 150-acre vineyard in the heart of the Niagara Peninsula wine region of Ontario, Canada. We produce organic and biodynamic wines that earn recognition, from critics and consumers alike, year after year.

From their purchase of the Niagara-on-the-Lake vineyard in 2005, the Redelmeiers committed their energies to sustainable viticulture. By 2008, they had created the first wine estate in Canada to earn both organic and biodynamic certification for its vineyard and winery.

Southbrook is the first biodynamic certified vineyard in Canada - They became officially certified by Pro-Cert Organics, Canada’s national certifier of organic food products, and by Demeter, the international body that oversees biodynamic agriculture. They are also the first winery to achieve LEED Gold Certification, continuing to garner other accolades, notably the Award of Excellence for Architectural Design and an Award of Merit for Green Buildings from the Canadian Institute for Steel Construction.

Southbrook makes every effort to live in harmony with the land. From their biodynamic, organic vineyard they produce fine age-worthy wines, most notably Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, classic Bordeaux blends and Chardonnays.

 


Ann Sperling - Winemaker

An inseparable team because their goal is one and the same – to grow the best wines that express their origins with authenticity and integrity. The team is led by Ann Sperling, Director of Winemaking and Viticulture. Ann was integral to Southbrook's transition from winemaker to winegrower, having introduced Bill Redelmeier to the property in Niagara-on-the-Lake that has become our new home. Her commitment to managing our vineyard organically and biodynamically is met with equal dedication by our Vineyard Manager Len Van Hoffen.

Southbrook also has the dedicated " Farm Team" with Linc Farm who take care of the sheep, pigs, chickens and more on the Southbrook Property.

ユニークなワイン
By MJ on 27 August 2021

カナダ以外ではないと思われる品種構成。 レモン、青りんご、アカシアの花の香りが特徴的で、リースリングが前面に出ているが、味わいの面でヴィダルがミュスカ、シャルドネが蜜のようなコクを与えている印象。モデレートな日照に起因する、ロワールのような湿ったハーバルなニュアンスもある。 還元による硫化水素香があり、リダクティブな醸造が伺えるが、複雑性に寄与しており、クリーンな印象もあり、自然派ワインが苦手な方でも美味しく飲めるレベル。 ボトリング時の二酸化炭素がわずかに溶け込んでいる舌触り。 シャンパーニュ程度の僅かな残糖が果実味と飲みごたえを、高い酸とローアルコールが瑞々しさを与えており、ジューシーなテクスチャーで万人受けするスタイル。 余韻も長くしなやかな凝縮感があり、樹上期間の長さを感じる。 10%程度のアルコールはガツンと来るマッチョなワインが好きな方には物足りないかもしれないが、それは自分も含めた酒に弱い面々にはネガティブではないと思う。 2000円前後で購入できるワインの中ではかなりユニークなワインだと思う。 また購入したい。
