Quick Overview

Sandhill Estate Vineyard

Small Lots Barbera 2013

Master Winemaker Howard Soon has finely crafted Canada's only Barabera in its classic style! With only 15 barrels produced, this is a wine you will be proud to share with friends and family!



FLAVOUR PROFILE
The ruby red colour draws you in with its wonderful bouquet of cherry, plum and red berry with a touch of leather, earth and smoky oak. On first sip your palate will be rewarded with fresh, ripe flavours of red berry, red currant and cherry. The dry, yet juicy lingering finish beautifully emphasizes the fruit notes of a classic Barbera. We think this wine is a perfect match for pairing with meaty lasagna, eggplant parmesan, and gourmet pizza topped with roasted tomato, basil, and red peppers.


WINEMAKER NOTES
Our Barbera planting is at the base of the cliff at the southern tip of our estate vineyard. The accumulated heat offered by the cliff, resulted in fully ripe grapes with moderate acidity. Careful attention by our vineyard manager to limit yield, brings full, ripe flavours and smooth tannins. This vineyard captures the true expression of Canada's only Barbera.
