CELEBRATING OUR SHADY ROOTS

The Bootlegger Baco Noir

Description

During Prohibition airplanes would visit the estate to collect whiskey and wine made in local barns. A throw-back to times gone by, this high-flying wine is ripe and juicy.

Winemaker's Notes

  • The grapes were harvested in late September.
  • 20% barrel aged in 100% American oak.
  • 80% aged in stainless steel tanks to create the perfect balance between
    oak and fruit.

The Goat Lady Chardonnay

Description

This wine is named after Marion who kept goats next to the vineyard when the Speck Bros. were children. Marion fed their dog Boswell warm bowls of fresh goats' milk and it didn't take long for him to abandon them and move in with her. A creamy rich Chardonnay that keeps you coming back for more.

Winemaker's Notes

  • 100% Chardonnay.
  • Fermented and aged in American oak for 7 months.
  • Partial malolactic fermentation produces a creamy rich mouthfeel while maintaining freshness.

The Padré Cabernet-Merlot

Description

Before starting a winery with his three sons, Paul Speck Sr. was a 'Padré'. This wine is made in his honour. A luscious and full red too sinful to be served in church.

Winemaker's Notes

  • 100% barrel aged for 16 months.
  • 60% French oak barrels and 40% American oak barrels.
  • A mixture of new and older oak.

Reviews

The Goat Lady Chardonnay

“A beautiful, bright and vibrant Chardonnay. This wine has undergone partial malolactic fermentation contributing to a creamy texture, but still with a lot of vibrant, fresh fruit. Aromas of golden apple and pear with a hint of honey, Medium+ bodied on the palate, with great balance of fruit, acidity, and creaminess. All this at an excellent price too! Enjoy with scallops or any rich seafood, or classic herb-roasted chicken.”

The Bootlegger Baco Noir

“The palate’s treated to a sweet ripe gusher of palate flavours with kirsch liqueur, cassis, black currant jam and sweet vanilla to the fore. It’s medium-plus bodied and generously textured with palate replays of flavours persisting through the lengthy finish and aftertaste. Give this a go with pulled pork with chutney or barbecue sauce or smoked and grilled ribs slathered with spicy barbecue sauce..”

The Padré Cabernet-Merlot

"A seriously gorgeous Niagara red wine blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. This wine was matured for 16 months in French and American oak barrels. Aromas of black fruit and smoke. Perfect for grilled meats.."
