Tasting notes

Fresh, inviting and clean, this ruby coloured wine shows aromas of cranberry, strawberry and cocoa nibs . A dry palate that is rich with red cherries and a hint of fresh herbs that will complement chicken, pork and earthy root vegetables dishes

Fresh, inviting and clean, this aromatic gamay is juicy, lightly musky and peppery. Offering a great deal of pep on the palate with very fine tannins and an abundance of red fruit. Lively with more complexity than expected. Ready-to-drink. (90 points - Sara d'Amato, Wine Align)

This Gamay is wild fermented and spends 12 months in neutral French oak barrels. It has an attractive nose of raspberries, strawberries and blue plums in a pure and persistent profile. It’s smooth and highly gulpable on the palate with a bevy of juicy red berries and tingly acidity on the finish. (91 points - Rick VanSickle winesinniagara.com)

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.
