Fruit sourced 100% from our Backyard Block at Creekside Estate Winery.
We are committed to Sauvignon Blanc at Creekside - have been since the very beginning in 1997.
Backyard Sauvignon Blanc gets most of our attention because Rob's "office" overlooks the vineyard. He is constantly working in the vineyard, waiting for exactly the right pick date.
The resulting wine is true to our cool climate roots with vibrant freshness and crisp acidity, big, bold fruit and delicately balanced.
2020 was a tough year for many but the positive side is that it was a remarkable vintage for winemaking in Ontario. It was a hot, dry growing season that produced surprisingly clean, balanced, and beautiful fruit. All varieties maintained a nice level of acidity with concentration of flavours and great structure. Fresh and vibrant whites and rosés and reds built to last.
Salad of greens dressed with melted goat cheese rounds is classic. Scallop ceviche or any other ceviche if you can’t find good scallops. Freshness is the keyword, use your imagination.
