Baco Noir is a Folle blanche x V.riparia hybrid variety. It is widely planted in Ontario and almost unique to the province. A full flavoured grape that is used to produce dry table wines, it commonly produces deep dark pigmented red wines. Flavour profiles of the wines range from rich dark fruit, currant, spice, leather and can produce big earthy reds.
After a day working with Baco it shows! This deeply pigmented wine is always exciting to work with. It is often temperamental and demands a lot of attention. It has a delicate balance with its acidity and seems to have two distinct characteristics – earthy forest or dark fruit and berries. It can produce a wide range of wines starting with rosé to big bold reds. This reserve offers a nice balance between your red fruit and more complex notes of coffee grounds and dark chocolate. About 900L of this reserve was produced in new and old American oak barrels, 8 months aging in oak and unfiltered
