Tasting Notes

Bursting with flavour and low in alcohol, Pixie Petite is a refreshing drink for any occasion. With notes of peach, strawberry and citrus, a tiny touch of sweetness and a lovely spritzy feel, it keeps popping from first sip to the last!
Varieties

Vidal is a hybrid grape variety developed in the 1930s. It was brought to Canada in the late 1940s and is used primarily to make icewine, dry white wines and some wonderful sparkling pinks. Known for its floral and fruity aromas and bright acidity, wines made from this grape are typically ready to be enjoyed right away. Pinot Noir is the classic Burgundian grape. Finicky and difficult to grow, it nonetheless has found itself particularly suited to some of the better sites in Prince Edward County.
Region

Nestled on a peninsula on the north shore of Lake Ontario, a short drive from Kingston, the Prince Edward County wine region sits on a bed of porous limestone. This is crucial for creating the mineral, brightly acidic wines the region is known for. The vineyards benefit from breezes off of Lake Ontario, keeping the temperature down on hot summer days and cool at night. “The County” was first settled in the late 18th Century and, after years of farmland agriculture, began growing grapes in earnest by the early 2000s.
Vineyard

Fruit comes from a blend of Rosehall Run’s Prince Edward County vineyards, as well as top producers from the Niagara Bench.
