Creekside Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Canada, Ontario

Right from the start Sauvignon Blanc has been front-and-center as Creekside’s flagship white grape. We do it up unoaked, oaked, single-vineyard, pan-Peninsula blend, bubbly... just about every which way because we love it. Sauvignon Blanc carries its fresh energy and cornucopia of flavours wherever it goes, never failing to invigorate, refresh, and beguile. However, “savvie” does cost Rob years of life expectancy trying to get the pick date just right.

Craig Pinhey It is rare to taste such good varietal character (gooseberry, citrus, mineral) that this has, for this low price. Clean, fresh. On point.

Michael Godel Complex nose, sweet fruit juxtaposed against funky stone, earth and sky. Fulsome and fleshy palate, great acid push and tang. Steely but textural and really long. Risk reward with great result. Here from a winemaker who gets it and that counts for so much, regardless of the cost. Knowing the grape this must be one of the competition and country’s great value wines.

Vintage Notes

2020 was a remarkable vintage for winemaking in Ontario. It was a hot, dry growing season that produced surprisingly clean, balanced, and beautiful fruit. All varieties maintained a nice level of acidity with concentration of flavours and great structure. Fresh and vibrant whites and rosés and reds built to last.

Producer Description

Creekside Estate Winery opened in 1997 in small-town Jordan, Ontario.  The Winery is run by a passionate (some say fanatical) group of industry veterans who have decades of experience in their respective fields. The team of self-described cork dorks love what they do, and have fun doing it. 

Early on the darlings of the Creekside portfolio were, like the people who created them, a little outside of the mainstream fold; Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah are the signature wines.  Creekside has also developed a cult following for its Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon blend and Ontario’s award winning Broken Press Syrah.

Despite being considered viticulturally off-kilter for the region these 2 grapes showed promise and the early successes spurred further investment in the vineyard and cellar.
