My recent trip to Prince Edward County proved that there were some very good wines being made in Ontario's emerging frontier, here's a sampling of 10 wines:

Hinterland 2009 Sparkling Rosé - $37.00 (W)
Hinterland is strictly a sparkling wine house located in Prince Edward County ... and if you've never been there you're missing out on some of the best bubbly being made in Ontario ... and that's high praise for a producer under 5 years old, especially with all the bubbly being made in the province. This particular traditional method Rosé Hinterland started releasing after 18 months on lees, but my review is for the batch they just released, which is after 26 months of lees contact in bottle - giving more depth of character to the wine. A blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay the bubbly is a perfect pretty mix of strawberry, cherry and raspberry on both the nose and palate ... in 3-6 months the yeasty-leesy notes will begin to evolve and show off even more of this wine’s elegance ... at the moment the red berries shine amongst that very balanced acidity. I wish I could pour each and every one of you a glass because even my description doesn't do this beauty its full justice. Price: $37.00 - Rating: **** 1/2+
We're pleased to be representing Prince Edward County and serving the 2011 Whitecap this evening at the Hogtown Throwdown event at the Evergreen Brick Works. Tickets are still available here
Hinterland was invited to participate in a radio discussion on Bill C-331 along with Stoneboat Winery from British Columbia. We've provided the link to the podcast here.
