PELHAM SHORT HILLS BENCH ONTARIO HYBRID BACO NOIR 2019 (CANADA)

PELHAM SHORT HILLS BENCH ONTARIO HYBRID BACO NOIR 2019 (CANADA)

This is something special. A hybrid red wine grape native to North America.

This is something very special: made with 100% Baco Noir, grown and bottled on the Pelham estate, from Niagara’s most premium vineyards, on and surrounding the Short Hills Bench. Deep ruby red colour with hints of purple. Ripe blackberry and plum aromas, with coffee, cedar and smoky notes. Dry and full bodied with black cherry flavour. Very well balanced with a very long finish. 

Food recommendations: Incredibly versatile. Aged cheddar, game meats, beef with horseradish or mustard. Try venison or lamb on the grill or spicy based pasta. Startling yet remarkably harmonious, the pairing of strawberries with black pepper.  

£14.99

Description

In the late 18th century, their great-great-great grandfather was deeded the land on which the winery sits. Fast forward six generations and they’re still on the family farm. They named the winery Henry of Pelham after great-great-great grandpa’s son, Henry, who had a pretty dry sense of humour, nicknaming himself “Henry of Pelham” after a British Prime Minister. He was quite the entrepreneur, building an inn and a tavern on the property and operating a toll road. He raised sheep. And grew grapes—some of the first to be planted in Canada. Their tasting room and wine store are in Henry’s carriage house. 
Visitors to their winery often ask, “What is the Short Hills Bench”? Hint: It’s not somewhere to sit. (Though it is a wonderful place to picnic.) “Short Hills Bench,” as seen on a wine label, means that the grapes were grown on a tiny piece of land along the Niagara Escarpment. Here’s why geography is so important to the wine in your glass.
