Harvest 2016 - A spectacular vintage
Grape Harvest 2016 is at the halfway mark at North 42 Degrees Estate Winery. With our Pinot noir, Sauvignon blanc and Gewurztraminer fermenting away with thought now would be a good time for a quick update on this year's spectacular vintage. Each vintage has a different personality shaped by mother nature, sunshine, soil, temperatures and the moderating Lake Erie breezes that we love so much in Lake Erie North Shore. This year, vintage 2016 provided us with dry warm sunny days. The dry weather on our terroir, at North 42 Degrees, has provided us with some beautiful rich and intense flavour profiles in the juice that will be fashioned by our winemaker, Jan Schulte-Bisping, into approachable, well balanced, complex wines. We are excited to see where fermentation takes us next and continuing Grape Harvest 2016.
