Cave Spring Cellars

Cave Spring Cellars Located on the Niagara Peninsula near the historical town of Jordan. They have vineyards on The Beamsville Bench, rated as one of the best micro-climates for the cultivation of Vinifera grapes. Cave Spring Cellars was founded in 1986 by grape grower Leonard Pennachetti and winemaker Angelo Pavan. "At Cave Springs we believe that our wines are unique because they capture what the French call 'Gout de Terroir'; or Taste of the Land from which they come; and no amount of Artifice-Ecological or otherwise could ever replicate the particular flavour profile they achieve. The uniqueness of our wines stems directly from their authenticity of origin".

  Cabernet Select Late Harvest
This wine originates from cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc grapes grown along a slop of the Niagara Escarpment known as the Beamsville Bench. These berries were left to raisin on the vine during autumn, with a further concentratin of sugars and acids occurring when they were partially frozen by the first frosts of late fall. Selectively hand-harvested and pressed in a semi-frozen state, they deliver a sweet, rosé-tinged wine with luscious berry fruit and a delicate acidity.

This blend of predominanty Cabernet Franc and Merlot originates from the limestone-rich clays of the Niagara Escarpment and the gravelly, shale-based loams along the banks of the Niagara River.
