16 Mile Cellar in Niagara focuses on low intervention Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays

By Rick VanSickle

"It's becoming more and more common in Niagara wine country - tiny boutique wineries beginning their quest with a laser focus on two or three key grape varieties and that's it. Often that means Pinot Noir for the reds and Chardonnay for the whites."

Beppi Crosariol reviews our: Tenacity Pinot Noir 2015

"SCORE: 92 PRICE: $50 - Just 180 cases of this pinot, to be released May 5th, were produced from a Niagara vineyard that normally yields 600 cases for the boutique estate's flagship pinot bottling. Such was the weather in 2015, when a devastating spring frost destroyed 75 per cent of the bud clusters. The surviving fruit that made it to maturity, however, clearly benefited from the vines' reduced crop burden, ripening beautifully. This is silky, supple and succulent pinot, Burgundian in elegance, with notes of cherry, light spice and whispers of caramel and toasty oak. Gently sticky tannins supply welcome structure and bode well for possibly eight years in the cellar. Available direct through 16milcellar.com."
