Pinot Noir

   
     

2014 Pinot Noir VQA Prince Edward County

   

The grapes used to make our 2014 County Pinot Noir were 83% from our estate vineyard and 17% from a nearby vineyard in the County. 2014 was a great vintage, as the weather conditions gave us slow, steady ripening throughout the season, with a beautiful September to develop concentrated flavours in the grapes. Our traditional approach with minimal handling in the winery has resulted in a wine that reflects the County terroir – intense and bright cherry and blackberry flavours, good minerality and finely balanced acidity. Its complexity allows for pairing with many foods, from salmon and cheese soufflé to lamb or duck.

 

Wine critic David Lawrason writes: “this is a brilliant County pinot noir with the aromatic tension of a fine Burgundy ….. Really pretty special ….. Tannins are very fine; the length is very good to excellent."

Wine critic Michael Godel writes: “In 2014 Stanners takes 85 per cent Estate grown plus 15 per cent from Huyck's Point Road to make one of Prince Edward County's most important pinot noirs to date ….. More than a solid wine from Colin Stanners, in fact it's exactly what PEC pinot noir is and from this new launch point can only get better.

Wine critic John Szabo writes: “….I appreciate the genuine complexity and freshness. Tannins are ultra fine-grained but firm, while acids are ripe and succulent. Very good length. A classic county pinot in the delicate and minerally genre, tart red fruit and limestone-flavoured, by now a truly regionally identifiable style."

2014 Pinot Noir Barrel Select VQA Prince Edward County   NEW RELEASE

   

The grapes for this special wine came entirely from our estate vineyard. We chose our favourite barrels from the great 2014 vintage and the resulting wine has more complex fruit flavours of cherry and blackberry and more tannin than our regular 2014 Pinot, giving an exceptionally long, elegant finish. The wine is unfiltered and our non-interventionist winemaking method allows the characteristics of our vineyard terroir to better emerge. We are very pleased to offer this distinctive wine from one of our best vintages to date.

Riesling

   

2014 Stanners Vineyard Riesling

   

The vinification for this Riesling was somewhat unusual in that after fermenting to dryness, the wine was left on the fine lees for a year in a stainless steel tank. This exposure has imparted some toastiness to the basic fruit flavours of apple and lime. The result is an intriguing dry Riesling with a unique blend of flavours that sets it apart from the usual wines of this genre.

Chardonnay

   

2015 Chardonnay VQA Prince Edward County           NEW RELEASE

   

A late spring frost in 2015 reduced our Chardonnay yield dramatically but, though the present release is limited, the surviving grapes were excellent. The wine was 50% barrel fermented in French Burgundian oak and 50% fermented in stainless steel. It has pleasing acidity and minerality underlying luscious bright apple and lemon flavours, a Chablis-like white wine with a refreshing lift. An excellent example of a true County Chardonnay!

 

Wine Critic Michael Godel writes: “Colin Stanners brings another impressive County chardonnay into County view. The 50-50 barrel/stainless steel split is a wise one, leading to a beautifully and correctively reductive chardonnay that will need a year to find its feet on solid ground. The bite into a crisp, green apple is seasonally wondrous, luxurious even and the mouthful this wine provides is stirring …… here we have a winemaker who not only understands flavour and pleasure, but also structure. This Prince Edward County chardonnay is on the path towards becoming one that can be counted on the first five fingers, if it isn't already there. Drink 2018-2021.

2015 Chardonnay VQA Lincoln Lakeshore           NEW RELEASE

   

The grapes for this Chardonnay were hand harvested from a single vineyard in the Lincoln Lakeshore sub-appelation of the Niagara Peninsula. The wine was fermented and lightly oaked for 12 months in tightly grained French oak barrels. This is a full bodied Chardonnay with beautifully rich flavours of honey, peach and vanilla, nicely counterbalanced by the acidity.

Pinot Gris

   

2015 Pinot Gris cuivré

   

This represents a small batch of our much loved, beautifully copper – coloured, version of Pinot Gris, derived from leaving the skins in contact with the juice for 24 hours before pressing and starting the fermentation. The skin contact imparts fruit complexity and some tannin to the wine resulting in a surprisingly complex finish which follows delicious subtle and gentle citric fruit flavours. The small size of the batch is due to losses incurred by a late Spring frost but the surviving grapes were exceptional. A unique Pinot Gris with a complex signature.
