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
20% of the Pinot for this wine was dried for the final blend, which then spent 20 months in French oak. It's not like other Niagara Pinot Noirs and does not pretend to be. It's a bolder, riper version that gets its complexity from the appassimento method of winemaking that is this winery's signature. Once you understand that, you can appreciate this lovely bolder style wine with its nose of spicy red fruits, cloves, nutmeg, plums, bramble and cassis fruit. It cuts deep on the palate with complex flavours that run the gamut from dark cherry to juicy cassis and plums all backed up by layers of baking spices, solid structure and ripe tannins. Score - 91.
