The 2015 Ensemblé is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc (78%) and Sémillon (22%) that has been barrel fermented in mostly neutral barrels and aged on its lees for added creaminess.
This wine possesses a lovely chalky minerality outline with refreshing acidity. It is inspired by the beautiful dry, white wines found in Graves, a well-known sub-region of Bordeaux. A superbly rich layering of complex winemaking techniques, this wine brims with the mouth-watering exotic aromatics of passionfruit, plumeria flower and lemongrass. A vein of goosebery and seville orange marmalade carry through to the lingering, creamy finish. This wine shows a honeyed warmth throughout with a rich almost oily texture, finishing with a dried hay character so typical of aged Semillon.
Quite easily enjoyed upon release, our Ensemblé may be cellared for up to 5 years to experience further development.
We are quite proud to announce that our 2015 Ensemble has been selected to compete in this year's Six Nations Challenge.
In 2017, our 2015 Ensemble was honoured with the top award at Wine Align National Awards of Canada receiving a Platinum medal. Only 1% of the wines judged received Platinum recognition.
