2019 Inniskillin Discovery Series Baco Noir
Harvested from a select vineyard in the Niagara Peninsula these grapes were immediately destemmed and crushed into a stainless steel tank. Fermented at an average temperature of 25°C the wine was then pressed off the skins and transferred into both French and American oak where it was aged until ready to bottle.
Aged in French and American barrels, this wine displays warm aromas of vanilla, cocoa and juicy, ripe dark fruit. On the palate rich, concentrated flavours of plum blackberry and black currant are balanced by smooth, silky tannins.
