This wine is named for layers of dolomitic limestone unique to the Niagara Escarpment. Through the forces of erosion, these rock strata have come to enrich the soils of the Escarpment’s benchland. Originating from selected vineyards along these gentle slopes, this Pinot Noir bears the mark of its origins. The calcareous clays of these sites contribute to the delicate aromatics and silky textures that are its hallmark.
Great winemaking finds its origins through a marriage of vision, passion and patience. More than three decades ago, the Pennachetti family helped to pioneer the cultivation of noble European grape varietals on the Niagara Peninsula with the planting of their first Riesling and Chardonnay vines at Cave Spring Vineyard. In the years since, Cave Spring Cellars has established itself as one of Canada’s most acclaimed wineries, earning a reputation for crafting elegant and distinctive cool-climate wines in the heart of Ontario’s wine country.
