WHAT'S AVAILABLE NOW:


 

2017 ramirez CHARDoNNAY $30

VQA PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY

This Chardonnay sourced from the Ramirez Family Vineyard in Hillier features rich apple butter and caramel, with delicate notes of popcorn and baking spice. Unlike our usual style, this wine is 100% barrel fermented in French oak, giving a luscious mouthfeel whilst still offering refreshing acidity alongside flavours of lemon and ripe pear.

2017 Lighthall chardonnay $35

VQA PRINce edward county

A stellar vintage of County Chardonnay highlighting all typical aspects of our microclimate. The nose starts with a flinty gunpowder minerality with notes of salted caramel and honeyed apple. The follow through shows a super fresh palate with elements of lemon zest. All around, a well-rounded version, with a long finish of butterscotch and toasted walnut.

2018 south bay pinot gris $25

VQA PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY 

This wine is unmistakably county Pinot Gris. The fruit driven aromas of juicy pear and cantaloupe are delicate and inviting. The use of an Alsatian yeast strain and our method of partially fermenting in old French oak barrels give a smooth and rich mouthfeel, while the finish of flambé pear and honeyed apple keep you coming back for more.

2018 Gruner Veltliner SOLD OUT

VQA PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY 

This is the inaugural vintage of our County-grown Gruner! Super fresh and vibrant, this wine exudes citrus-driven aromas, with a savoury herbaceousness typical of this Austrian grape varietal. A fine flinty mineral component leads the grapefruit-driven palate, followed by the gentle verdant note of fresh-cut-grass. A light white-floral component rounds out the racey mouthfeel, leading to a super-clean dry finish. Perfectly matched to oysters and other rich seafood-laden dishes.

2017 LIGHTHALL pinot noir $35

VQA PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY 

This latest Réserve Particuliere is our biggest and boldest to date. The nose starts with a light earthy tone, combined with a super lush spicy pepper, cinnamon, baking spice aroma. The intensity of colour, tannin and bittersweet chocolate with red cherry and raspberry are reminiscent of black forest cake, is unprecedented. The long and intense finish brings back the spicy nose. Overall, nicely balanced between ripe fruit and a judicious use of French oak barrels.

2018 LIGHTHALL PROGRESSION - SPARKLING $20

VQA ONTARIO

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. Well paired with anything from a hot sunny patio to pizza to oysters, or served well chilled as an apéritif.

2018 LIGHTHALL THE FENCE - SPARKLING Sold out

VQA ONTARIO

This is our fourth release of rosé from our own vineyards – made with our own Pinot Noir, and re-fermented using the Charmat method. The nose features bright floral character, blended with wild red berries and rhubarb, which follow smoothly on the palate, accentuated by flirtatious bubbles. Very crisp and refreshing, this wine matches exceptionally with spicy rosé sauce and sweet red bell peppers.
