Description
When living as expats in Italy in the early 1990s, Len and Marisa Crispino discovered the wines of Valpolicella and became fascinated with the appassimento process of drying grapes prior to pressing to create a richer, more concentrated wine. After acquiring prime farmland in the Niagara Peninsula in 2000, the Crispinos formed Foreign Affair and began to craft appassimento wines here in Ontario. Their 2012 Pinot uses 20% dried grapes and is aged for 16 months on the lees in French oak. Expect this to be a complex, elegant wine with red fruit flavours and notes of leather.
Tasting Notes
This was crafted from 100% Pinot Noir, and 25% of the grapes were dried in the appassimento method - a signature of Foreign Affair's wines. Drying grapes prior to fermentation encourages greater concentration in the final wine. Here, this shows through in the impressive aromas and flavours of raspberry, cherry, sweet spice and a touch of cinnamon. Ripe and long. Enjoy this with grilled burgers and mushrooms.
