WELCOME TO LIGHTHALL.

WHAT'S AVAILABLE NOW:


 

LIGHTHALL CHARDoNNAY 2016

VQA PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY

 Using our tested technique combining oak and steel fermentation, including some newer barrels, this vintage will definitely make an impression. The rich notes allow the expression of mineral-driven terroir, and round out the freshness typical of the region.

south bay pinot gris 2016

VQA PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY 

This vintage was partially fermented in old French oak barrels, giving it an unctuous mouthfeel and a touch of caramelization to the fruit-driven palate of confit pears. The use of an Alsatian sourced yeast strain increases the luscious feel, giving the impression of sweetness without any residual sugar. A finely crafted rich vintage.

 

LIGHTHALL RAMIREZ FAMILY VINEYARDS CHARDoNNAY 2016 - Sold Out next release 2018

VQA PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY 

Ramirez Family Vineyard - 13.5% - This Chardonnay sourced from the Ramirez Family Vineyard in Hillier features  Asian pear and tropical fruit notes, with subtle hints of coconut, buttered popcorn and caramel.  The honeyed unctuous mouthfeel, as well as the persistently long finish, which features a delicate backdrop of cinnamon and cloves, are characteristic of the 100% fermentation in French oak barrels - a departure from our usual style.

 

LIGHTHALL pinot noir 2016: sold out

VQA PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY 

Another in the line of the Réserve Particulière, this crushed again by my three sons Patrick, Nicholas and Mathieu. This edition is big on bright red fruit on the nose and palate. The abundant silky tannins create an intense mouthfeel, while the finish features smooth buttery oak notes. Overall, this edition will cellar nicely for well over five years, but is very approachable in its youth.

VQA ONTARIO

Lighthall Vineyards - 11% - Fresh with buoyant acidity, this wine is made from our own Vidal grapes, and has had a second fermentation using the Charmat Method.  The nose is loaded with white grapefruit and green apple peel.
